That title is open to interpretation, but trips to Asia really open my eyes to how dangerous the place can be. To the local people, myself, other visitors,,,everyone. Asia holds more danger than most Westerners can imagine, but its good for a laugh, thought provocation, or good debauchery.

What is dangerous,,,family of 4 or 5 riding on a scooter; transporting 50 gallon tanks of natural gas on the back of a scooter; welding with no shoes, no goggles, and no gloves; gasoline dispensed in Johnny Walker bottles every few hundred meters along the roadside so people have convenient access; homes on waterways infested with mosquitoes carrying Dengue fever (about 5 kids died of Dengue in my hospital in the 2 weeks I worked in Cambodia); getting a pharmaceutical product completely different than what you were expecting after miming out your request to someone who doesn't speak or read English, and isn't actually a pharmacist, just dispenses medication like one.
