We should be fighting bathtubs, not terrorism...
So on average 40 Europeans die in terrorist attacks every year.
Drowning in bathtubs kills over five times as many people as terrorism – 223 per year! We need to pull all the taxpayer billions from fighting terrorism immediately and put them to work against bathtubs. They are more than five times as dangerous as terrorism!
Over six times as many die from falling off chairs – 254 people per year. We should be spending billions fighting chairs!
Worse still, 941 people per year die from falling out of beds. That’s over twenty times as many as die from terrorism.
4,362 people die every year in Europe from falling down staircases – over two orders of magnitude more than terrorism. Since we’re spending billions fighting terrorism, we need to spend at least trillions fighting staircases, according to the data.
An interesting article .

Oh god. I couldn't help but laugh my ass off in my intro to tech class. Everyone probably thought I was weird, but they're all like 5324789+ years old.
