A while back I wrote a post on how sharks aren’t the deadly monsters attacking people all the time that we think they are. Now I’m not suggesting that we all go and hug sharks, they only like to be touched by cleaning fish, nor that we jump in to swim with them, they play tag far too roughly for delicate humans. What I’m suggesting is that we really need to start worrying about stuff that is actually a concern rather than stuff that is just wild gesticulations in front of a camera for ratings.
So here is a list of things that kill more people than sharks annually:

That is a good one.
I’m working on another gun facts post after having had some “interesting” debates with people over my last one. It will tie in nicely to these sorts of stats that we get worried about but the others we just ignore.
Thanks for putting it all into perspective, Tyson…
No probs. And watch-out for bees, they’re merciless killers!
