Deadly Statistics

You are very nearly 38 times more likely to be killed by misadventure
during auto-erotic asphyxiation
than you are to be killed by a Shark.

You are over 6 times more likely to be killed by an icicle falling
and impaling you in Russia alone
than you are to be killed by a Shark anywhere in the world.

You are over 28 times more likely to be killed by the impact
of falling out of your own bed
than you are to be killed by a Shark.

You are around twice as likely to be killed by Ants
than you are by a Shark.

You are just about as likely to be killed by a vending machine
as you are by a Shark.

People ignore statistics, they'd rather fantasise in the dark.
