just found this somewhere and thought it was funny in a sad way...


A study was conducted recently to determine the average crime Rate at international airports around the world. The study ordinary looking man standing in the airport terminal and reading a newspaper. He had an empty briefcase next to him, which he would ignore. Observers then recorded how long it would take for the briefcase to be snatched:

- In Brussels, Belgium the case was stolen within 4 minutes and 20 seconds.

- In Washington DC it was stolen within 3 minutes and 16 seconds.

- At Heathrow, London the briefcase was snatched in less than 2 minutes.

- In New York, the case was stolen within 1 minute and 5 seconds.

- In Los Angeles it took only 43 seconds before the case was snatched.

- In Nairobi the team conducting the study was robbed on the way to the airport and the briefcase stolen long before the test could commence
