THINGS THAT ARE STATISTICALLY LIKELY TO KILL YOU
Added on: 18th Mar 2015
Just in the US about alone 10,000 people are admitted into ERs due
to firework injuries annually. Your chance of death: 1-in-615,488.
Your level of risk will obviously vary with location, but statistically
speaking your chances are 1-in-500,000
In the past they thought our chances were something like 1-in-20,000.
Now, thanks to modern technology we’ve learned that they’re closer to
1-in-500,000. We still think that’s a bit high though…
Your chances of being mauled by man’s best friend are 1-in-147,717
Once again, living on top of a fault line will significantly increase
your risk. In general however, your chances are 1-in-131,890
VENOMOUS BITE OR STING
At 1-in-100,000 you are almost twice as likely to die of a bee sting
as you are a dog bite
Each year around the world about a quarter of a million people are
struck by lightning. Your chances of dying from it: 1-in-83,930
Living in the US or India increase your chances but in general
they hover somewhere around 1-in-60,000
We know, just don’t commit treason or murder and your chances will
fall significantly and unless you live in China, North Korea, Yemen, Iran,
or the United States you can’t be legally executed anyway.
Still, your chances would be 1-in-58,618
