Subject: How safe are you?

Doctors vs. Gun Owners

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 .
Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 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.
Statistics courtesy of FBI

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

So, statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous
than gun owners. Remember, 'Guns don't kill people, doctors do.'

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT Almost everyone has at least one
doctor. This means you are over 900 times more likely to be killed by a
doctor as a gun owner!

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

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.

Pretty cool!

just above our comments.. "recent activity" .. i've been missing a seperate post area, comments are up, but not the posts obviously.. Well OBVIOUSLY im a lop.. all you have to do is hit forum and all the posts come up.. sheesh..

Have noticed that when you edit a comments title it does not change on the main screen.. any changes make in the title section show on the thread page, but not the main.
