Check out the video of the week from NIE. Do people always have the best judgment regarding risky events? Consider accidents regarding selfies. What did you think before watching the video? Is a "No Selfie Zone" reasonable or do you think people are overestimating the danger? Did the video change your opinion on the probability of accidents due to selfies?
Conduct some research in the newspaper online with a partner about risky behaviors. Should there be rules against or consequences for the risky behavior? Why or why not?
