What is wrong with people?

Last night, while we were driving home from a shopping trip in Buffalo, the kid noticed an advertisement for Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours.

"Aren't those dangerous?" she asked. This led to a discussion with her father about all the bodies buried under the silt near the falls. He mentioned that if you went down the whirlpool they'd probably never even find your body.

"And people go into the whirlpool on the jet boat everyday?" she sounded stunned and disturbed. We quickly realized that she thought the Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours was a way for people to commit suicide. And apparently popular enough to warrant roadside advertisements.
