Anyone want to guess the most common cause of accidental death in the US?
Compare this to the amount of people killed in terrorist attacks, and
then work out the state response, and how much the global order has
changed since 9/11...
In at No 1 is -
1. Motor vehicle crashes
Deaths per year: 43,200
"The winner, by a ridiculously huge (and ever-increasing) margin is:
death by car wreck. Head on collision, sideswipe, single-vehicle
smash-up, full car rollover, pedestrian takedown, choking on own carsick
vomit, spontaneous combustion-the fun never stops for car owners. Try
air travel instead; it's much safer. Do you see it anywhere on this list?"
