Flight Attendants Want Stricter Gadget Rules Reinstated
The safety spiel is pointless theater. Please suggest one example where the outcome of an emergency would have been significantly different if nobody had listened to the safety speech. They exist only to give a false belief that you can survive a real plane emergency. Air travel is statistically safer than driving, but if a plane goes down, you are dead. Your corpse will yard sale or burn up, usually both, in that order. (Carlin said it best: "In the event of a water landing...doesn't that sound an awful lot like CRASHING INTO THE OCEAN!")
Also, the safety spiel is just a disclaimer to shield airlines from "The tray attacked me!" lawsuits.
The function of flight attendants is to babysit adults for a couple hours and deal with "problem passengers." The safety spiel lets attendants believe their role is more important than it is, so their union wants to preserve the silly exercise.

Hidden Obstacles For Google's Self-Driving Cars
