    I wouldn't worry about being shot, but i would worry about self-fulfilling superstitions.

    Guy at the tire place drops a wrench, they say 'be careful.' Life goes on.
    Same guy drops the same wrench when Satan's SUV is on the lift, people get anxious about how the car 'tried to kill me!' And start paying too much attention to the threat, not enough to what they're actually doing, and someone gets hurt because stupid.

    Which is NOT, i should point out, an exercise in an atheist imagining silly inferior Christains being sillies. I have seen it several times on ship. Sailors can be quite superstitious...and stupid.

    Oh. I did not mean to imply that the hull was in danger of cracking, just that I could understand a bunch of upsetness if the actual boundary of the people-tank were threatened.
    Freaking because of a fear of sympathetic magic to the hull, through damage to the toy, was where I was heavily underimpressed.
