What are Your Chances of Dying This Year?

Each year, an adult has a 1-in-1,743 chance of being killed in an accident. This according to a short piece at Discover. Chances are lower if you’re a kid. Nine-year-olds have 1-in-10,000 odds. I wonder if those same odds apply to kids with lead-packing toys from China? Well, if you’re an executive at a company that makes those toys, I bet your odds are definitely lower.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
