10:16 am
that's why they don't have seatbelts. there's just the incidences are so rare that you don't even need them most of the time. that said there are some pretty good strategies you can employ like if you want to stay safe on a train if there is an accident. >> okay. what do you do? >> some of this stuff is notional because they are so rare. but you don't want to be where the collision is at. >> but you don't know where it is going to be. >> probably the front or the back. >> but is a derailment also the problem? >> derailments are nine times more likely ln a collision. generally trains get crumbled up in the middle. you don't want to be in the front, middle or back. >> you don't want to be in the cafe car. >> will is not as much padding or restraint. you want to be in a backward face being seat toward the front of the car. >> backwards facing for what reason? >> astronauts when they come back to earth spread out to stay
10:17 am
safe as opposed to flying out of your seat. trains are incredibly safe. i just want to reiterate. >> we gotcha dave! what about planes. we hear so many things about terrible tragic air disasters. >> planes are even safer than trains. >> statistically. >> you could travel in an airplane for more than 100,000 years. if you could live that long and still never be in an accident. that's how unlikely it is. >> i think the scary thing is you feel out of control because you are out of control. and when you see images like we saw in taiwan or other places it makes you think, oh, my gosh that can happen. but is there a way to keep yourself safe on a plane? >> yeah. it is easy to be scared. if that's you and you want to be extra safe that really marginal fraction of a percent, there some data on boeing 737s to suggest that there are safer places to sit in an airplane. >> where? >> so first of all, the back. the smart guys are in the back by the toilet because there's a -- >> well for obvious reasons.
10:18 am
first dibs. >> yeah. but there is also a better survivability rate back there. 69% survivability in the rare number of accidents that are actually fatal. it is about 59% in mid coach. and 49% survivability at the front. >> what about window? >> so windows. you're going to be pinned in there. this is more notional because there is just not enough data. you'll be pinned in if you are by a window when everybody is trying to get out. you're better off on an aisle because i have to go to the bathroom a lot. >> buses. >> buses, also really good news. really safe form of transportation. buses don't have seatbelts for the same reason as trains. they're very safe. you could travel in buses for tens of thousands of years and never be in an accident let alone a fatal one. but there is some notional evidence to suggest that yes, if you're in an aisle seat you can get out quicker. you're also going to have less of a chance of flying out of the window or debris coming in to hit you. >> so no window seat.
10:19 am
you don't get to look at the landscape as you go by. >> cars. >> cars are the most dangerous. in your lifetime you have a 1 in 112 chance of dying in an automobile accident. >> wow. that's higher than i thought it would be. >> your lifetime risk, anything could kill you. cars are pretty likely to do it. cars are actually getting safer. that's the good news. there's more people on the roads, more miles being driven but there's fewer and fewer deaths by cars. that's good news. that's because of technology. new cars with sensors in them daylight running lights small things that help us have a safer journey. >> thanks so much. great information. >> you stay safe buddy. low-cost valentine ideas to fill their hearts without emptying your wallet. and bobbie's buzzing with the products that will happen you handle all those winter woes. ♪ let it woes ♪ ♪ let it woes ♪

10:39 am
may be to run, not walk the other direction. >> but if you give a wild animal some space, most of the time there is nothing to fear apparently. here with some creatures that are safer than they seem from the national wildlife federation dave mizejewski. >> our first animal over here is an animal that is dangerous. okay? this is a black leper cub. but i want to bring her on here because not only is she totally adorable. >> she's gorgeous. >> i just wanted to make a point that predators are scary and they can be dangerous, but only if we approach them. these animals live in africa and asia. sometimes these things happen but it is mostly when we encroach in their habitat. if you let wild animals be wild. these animals actually live in suburban areas. the danger is really minimal. >> why is she not afraid of you? >> jamie is her handler. and basically her mom. i couldn't even hold that
10:40 am
leopard cub. >> you're his mommy. >> but here in the united states we have mountain lions living in griffith park in los angeles very close to people with no dangerous incidences. if we allow animals to be wild and give them their habitat, that is the message of the national wildlife foundation. >> how long have you been his ma in? >> four months. >> since she was born. >> you're not going to like this -- >> is it a tantrantula? >> it is a rose haired tarantula. no tap rant la has venom strong in you have to hurt a human being. >> say that again. >> no tarantula has venom strong in you have to hurt a human being. >> then why are people terrified of them? >> people have arachnophobia. >> don't you remember "the brady bunch" scene? it was crawling along -- it was
10:41 am
scary. >> they do have fangs and any would bite if i would harass him. >> but you would never hand him over to me. >> no. they're actually surprisingly delicate. >> he's beautiful to look at. the symmetry of them is gorgeous. >> and the fur. any are amazing predators. they have a role. if you see them don't squish them. you guys mentioned this at the top of the hour. raccoons are very common in our cities an towns. >> that one is huge. >> yeah. he's well fed. >> he is. >> but here is the thing. you don't have to fear these animals as long as you never feed them or try to make them pets. >> what if it's rabid? >> just because you see a raccoon does not mean it is rabid. >> i know. but what if it is? you got to be afraid of that. >> if you never tried to approach this animal sick or
10:42 am
not sick -- it's not going to come after you. that's my message here. again, these guys -- you don't have to be afraid of them as long as you don't try to make them pets or let them eat your trash. they'll stay wild. >> if you kept it -- >> how adorable! look what just happened! >> if it is eating your trash and you don't want it to because they make a huge mess, how do you get them away? >> very simple. get a raccoon-proof trash can. don't put the trash out until the morning of the pick-up. another animal that gets a really bad wrap because people think they are really ugly. a virginia opposum. >> what happened to its ear? >> these animals are all rescue animals. he probably had a bad run-in. >> somebody took a bite out of him. >> but at any rate these guys might look ugly might look scary. they have these mouths filled with teeth. but this animal when it is threatened plays dead. they almost never attack. if you see an animal like this

10:52 am
that? >> i'd do the port with this. >> you are exactly right again. kathie is right again. >> this is a beautiful lodi wine. the being a wes belle blanc. >> i love that bottle. >> wendy wise wants to know what is real champagne and how is it made? >> i'm going to have you guys taste three different sparkling wines. you're going to guess which one is champagne, which one is prosecco -- >> well champagne means it came from the champagne region. sparkling wine can come from anywhere around the world. champagne comes from champagne, france. it is very elegant. prosecco comes from about an hour outside of venice. >> i already know the answer. >> she knows her champagnes. >> this comes from northeastern spain outside of barcelona. >> this is sweet.
10:53 am
