Boogeymen and Bathrooms: Rational Fear versus Irrational Fear

You might get hit by a bus.  It’s happened before.  Does that mean you should never cross a road?  Should you stay indoors?  Move to the wilderness where bus service is nonexistent?  Of course not, because you’re smart enough to understand you probably won’t be hit by a bus.  If you’re still afraid of homicidal buses, even knowing how rare they are, that’s called an irrational fear.  As a pedes...
