news flash...this just in...
According to the National Geographic
the chances of
DYING are 100%!
Thats right, the TOTAL ODDS of you dying by any cause are an astounding
1 in 1!
Some of the following stats are from the National Safety Council (who are obviously not doing a very good job if this list is any indicator!) and apply specifically to residents of the U. S. of A.
Canada does not have all of those
G U N DEATHS!
Anyway, statistically speaking you and I will probably succumb to one or more of the following damnit:
a) Shark Attack while trying to get back into a Helicopter 1 in 3
b) Heart Disease 1 in 5
c) Cancer 1 in 7
d) Stroke 1 in 24
e) Motor Vehicle accident 1 in 84
f) Suicide 1 in 119
g) Falling 1 in 218
h) Gun Assault 1 in 314
i) Pedestrian accident 1 in 626
j) Drowning 1 in 1,008
k) Motorcycle accident 1 in 1,020
l) Fire/Smoke 1 in 1,113
m) Bicycling 1 in 4,919
n) Air/Space Travel 1 in 5,051
o) Accidental Gun Discharge 1 in 5,134
p) Electrocution (accidental) 1 in 9,968
q) Alcohol Poisoning 1 in 10,048
r) Hot Weather 1 in 13,729
s) Hornet/Wasp/Bee Sting 1 in 56,789
t) Legal Execution 1 in 62,468
u) Lightning 1 in 79,746
v) Flood 1 in 144,156
w) Fireworks discharge 1 in 340,733
x) Crushed by Adoring Fans during Final Farewell Concert Tour 1 in 478,641
y) Guilt from the Devil 1 in 666,666
z) Shark Attack (w/o Helicopter) 1 in 8,000,000
I am almost guaranteed either heart disease (thanks DNA) or Shark Attack while trying to get back into a helicopter. Although it is summer so alcohol poisoning and hot weather are always a real threat.
How will you be exiting?????
