You are more likely to die in your bathroom than to be killed by a Shark
Killed by a shark, what are the odds?
You have all seen “jaws”, or even "Deep Blue Sea" who made sharks so famous as a blood thirsty killing machine. Some of you might be afraid of them coming out from the blue to eat you raw. Looking at this common fear, I went to check what was the real probability to be killed by a shark:
You actually are a lot more likely to die from an asteroid falling on your house (20,000 to 1), from some parts falling out of a plane (1/10 millions) and there are 15 times more causalities by falling coconuts than by sharks.
Be careful people, I also discovered in my serious quest that bath tubs and showers are deadly creature as 26 people die electrocuted every year by their water heating system and your odds to die slipping in your bathtubs are about 100 thousands time more likely than being attacked by a shark with an odd of 3,333 to 1.
Sharks are extremely important for the equilibrium of our oceans, they have roamed our oceans since before the time of dinosaurs, but their long reign at the top of the ocean food chain may be ending. Up to 73 million sharks are killed every year to primarily support the global shark fin industry, valued for the Asian delicacy shark fin soup. If you want to help Shark preservation, in addition to boycotting fin soups, visit PEW or Project Aware.
Hope you feel safer in the Oceans... See you soon!
