This reply will be lost in the sea of replies but the point the OP is making is valid. His delivery is arrogant but he is right. For the most part people will freak out when confronted with an extreme situation. For every 50 people I see on the street daily, 80% of them appear they would be worthless in a struggle. On the other hand you can not discount the multitude of average people that are of the type that run to the scene of a massive cotastrophe to lend a hand. There are all kinds out there. If you want to know what kind I am....well, I am sure there is a gps coordinate for my house somewhere in your databases.
Edited: for % sign.
