Safety in Numbers

After finishing watching a Late Night Gala Movie with my friend, we waited at a Orchard Road Traffic Light Junction. It was still red for the pedestrians but there's no cars coming from either side of the road and majority of the pedestrians from our side started to jay walk.

My friend turned to me and say: "Let's go"

I stopped him and said:"but it's still Red"

He replied: "Don't worry, there's Safety in numbers ... so many people crossing now, it will be quite safe"

I looked at him and answered: "Well in that case, I am sure that the bowling pins felt quite safe too when facing a bowling ball rolling towards them "
