You're far, far more likely to die in a car crash than from a shark, but most people are still more afraid of sharks than they are of driving, amirite?

Unless you own a Range Rover, these are amphibious exploring machines. So you risk a duel threat

I don't think most people worry about sharks though, even when going in the ocean except for people with a phobia.

Still probably more people than those who worry about car crashes.

Or even terrorism. Most people are more afraid of terrorism than driving even though the latter is statistically many times more likely to kill you

Along similar lines, you're far, far more likely to die of COVID than from any alleged complications from any of the vaccines, yet needlephobes still spoil herd immunity for everybody.

Yes, but people also don't go swimming with sharks that can eat them without a cage. This is called conditional probability.

Yes; that's why it's irrational. They're not going to be around sharks but they still fear them. Most people don't think twice about driving even though it's dangerous
