Something Funny…

January 18th, 2008

I received the following in an email in response to my blog post from a couple of days ago. I thought it was funny, so I thought I would pass it on.

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:
120,000.
(C) Accidental deaths per physician per year: 0.171. (17%)

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

Now think about this:

Guns
(A) The number of gun owners in the U.S.: 80,000,000. (Yes, that’s 80 million)
(B) The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups: 1,500.
(C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owner: .000188. (.0188%)

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.

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

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!
