    alarming statistics

    Doctors
    (A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000.

    (B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000.

    (C) Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~

    Now think about this:

    Guns
    (A) The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000.
    (Yes, that's 80 million)

    (B) The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups,
    is 1,500.

    (C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is .000188.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~

    So, statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.

    FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~

    Please alert your friends to this alarming threat.

    We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!

    Out of concern for the public at large, I withheld the statistics on lawyers for fear the shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention!

    hells bells

    Nice one griff.

    it was good to hear that that criminal justice think tank has looked at gun crime and said the bans have had no effect at all.

    the problem with statistics is that 80% of them are made up.

    Yes, but only 10% of the public think that 80% of statistics are made up!

    and I am unanimous in that

    9% of the time

    I think I read somewhere recently that 11 out of 10 people don't believe in statistics.
