Posted:Odds of dying?
"Life is a sexually transmitted disease. And the mortality rate is 100%".
Good ole Laing

Inhalation of gastric contents: deaths - 369. Ewww

Deaths through "Contact with hot tap-water" - 40 confused eek
With odds of 1 in 93125, it's too much of a risk. I'll never wash again

I intend to live forever - so far, so good.

If it costs "a penny for your thoughts", but people give you their "two-pence worth", who is getting the extra penny?

Posted:Your chances of killing yourself with a firearm are about twice that of someone else killing you with one..... interesting ^_^

And your odds of dying of suicide over your life are not so very low. Which is interesting when one considers that in general my graduating class from my high school would then roughly statistically have 3 deaths of suicide at some point.. and one was already well done for.

I also find it interesting how VERY low your chances of dying of a venemous snake or lizard exposure are....

to see how people mentioned in 'Nigerian who wants to give you money' spam are likely to die. Badly done site, but funny.

Compared to what tho? poisounous snakes? sure.

Seriously did you see how likely you are to kill yourself with a gun versus to be killed by a gun either accidentally or on purpose by someone else? Even here....

Posted:its not the gun that kills people. its the person behind it. if there were less guns there would be more knives because there would still be the same amount of people who want someone dead.

Ive allways thought it would be cool if all projectile weapons (save for crossbows couse there cool tongue) would somehow become useless and we would have to go back to fighting with swords. At least with a sword you can learn how to fend off another attacker with one, with a gun you just have to sort of run away lol. So maybie no guns and more knives would be better somehow
