This information might just save your life. Might being the operative word. You'll probably die anyway.

They didn’t mention that the doors open inward, so you will never get them open when the cabin is pressurized.  Sudden decompression at altitude would likely render you unconscious almost immediately so you wouldn’t even have a chance to regret it.

You may remember several years back that professional golfer Payne Stewart was killed in a private jet accident.  The jet depressurized in flight and everyone on it likely died while in still in flight.  The aircraft ran out of fuel and ultimately crashed while being tailed by airforce jets when it failed to turn per its flight pan.

People don't know this?  I thought this was common knowledge.  I guess common knowledge has gone the way of common sense.
