...reasons I don't like crowds.

Hundreds die in haj stampede
AT LEAST 345 pilgrims were killed yesterday when one of the holiest rituals of haj in Saudi Arabia turned to tragedy.

White-robed believers rushing to stone the Devil in a symbolic ceremony were caught up in a stampede and crushed. Many who escaped death were seriously hurt, with 289 people reported injured...
Death by Human Stampedes

After reading about the haj stampede deaths, I remembered the deaths from stampede at The Who concert. I googled The Who concert and found that there have been many stampede deaths as shown in the two links following the haj link. How sad it is that these deaths occur.
