"Of course you don't believe in goblins, or elves, or any of the wicked sprites that filled our ancestors with superstitious fear. But, when you read or hear about some of the strange ways in which people get hurt, it's enough to make you wonder whether there may not be supernatural "things" hovering about that cause us to commit foolish acts. Why does your wife occasionally drop a cup or burn her fingers on a stove she uses three times a day? Why does an experienced workman suddenly get his fingers nipped in a machine that he has been operating for many years without an accident? Why does an otherwise sensible, grown man or woman suddenly decide to go whizzing over the center line on the highway and attempt to pass another car on a hill or a "blind" curve? Why? Why? Why?"
