VIVID LANGUAGE

Jaws

When Jaws (the film starring a man-eating shark) opened at cinemas across the United States, the number of swimmers visiting California beaches dropped dramatically. Sharks do inhabit the California coast, but the risk of a swimmer actually being attacked by a shark is much less than the risk of being killed in a car accident while driving there.[1]

People are often not influenced by the true facts of a situation; more often, they are influenced by what makes the most vivid impression on their mind.
