Wow. When you think about it, it's incredible how many strangers we trust. We trust all the resturants and fast food places to feed us food that isn't poisoned. We trust the car dealers and makers that our car won't explode any time we get in the car, we trust that the cell phone companies don't put bugs in our phone that crawl out into our ears when we talk on the phone and brain wash us. We trust so many people that we don't know, yet there are so many crazy people in the world that could do anything they wanted without us knowing. Do we trust these people because we're all idiots? The odd thing is that our trust is tested when people get mad cow disease from bad beef, or e-coli from the soup plantation. Sometimes it backfires but when something like that happens, do people stop eating at the soup plantation? There are still just as many old people eating there as there used to be. Because they trust that the problem is fixed. Life is so weird when you analyze it as much as I do.
