Physical Danger

You will be doing a lot of traveling, so your best shot at becoming injured, maimed, or killed is to get in some kind of automobile or airplane accident. Please don't make a concerted effort to do so just to prove us right. We appreciate the solidarity, but we'd feel just fine being wrong on this one.

There may also be some threat of physical danger if you do consulting for someone and advise them to make a business decision that ultimately costs them a lot of money or ruins their business. If they start running at you with their briefcase raised over their head, run. That crazed look in their eye tells us he's not afraid to use it.
