Swine Flu Update #3

It’s been a bit since I’ve updated the Swine Flu death comparison.  Swine Flu is at 436 deaths in the US (Source: CDC).  Here are some things still more likely to kill you:

  • Birth Asphyxia
  • Discharge from very large firearm (at least .5o caliber) or artillery piece
  • Drowning in a swimming pool
  • Falling out of bed (it’s listed as “falls involving a bed”, I assume this doesn’t mean the bed pushed you)
  • My favorite “Electromechanical Shearing” which I’m pretty sure is death by wheat thresher/rice picker/paper pulping machine

Sleep well.
