Stat of the day

“Lightning kills more people than sharks.”

SignOnSanDiego.com > News > Science — Great white lies
On average, fewer than six people worldwide die each year from all types of shark attacks. In contrast, approximately 500 people are killed each year by elephants; 50,000 to 100,000 by venomous snake bites. Lightning kills more people each year than do sharks.
