You are as likely to lose an email as the checked bag on your next flight?

Breifly, from Deep Freeze 9: You’re as likely to lose an email as the checked bag on your next flight.

You’re as likely to lose an email as the checked bag on your next flight More email is lost than I thought. The loss rate is at least 0.7%, or 7 messages in 1,000 [1]. If you send ten messages a day, this means 25 will go astray in a year. For comparison, airlines operate with 3 to 10 lost baggage reports per 1,000 passengers on major airlines [2]. As for the old-fashioned way of doing it: the British Royal Mail has admitted that more than 14 million letters and parcels were lost, stolen, damaged or tampered in 2005, out of 22 billion items handled. That’s 0.06% -- ten times better than email!

Hmmm.
