15 Shocking Things More Likely To Kill You Than A Shark

There is a little fear in every single one of us, some more than others. And with that fear comes the everyday parts of life that make those fears a reality. Of course, not everything we are afraid of

There is a little fear in every single one of us, some more than others. And with that fear comes the everyday parts of life that make those fears a reality. Of course, not everything we are afraid of is real, but certain things, like coconuts falling from trees and people being struck by lightning are just two crazy happenings that end up killing a surprisingly large number of people each year. It would be easier to imagine life without these kinds of freakish deaths. However, that is the sad reality. Life isn't perfect.

For example, say you are afraid of the ocean. Could it be that the dark depths of the waters terrify you because you have no idea what is lurking underneath? Perhaps you do know what's under there and that is the reason why you are scared. Sharks swim through the oceans every day and night, and some people worry that when they are visiting the beach that they will be attacked. But the fact is, the odds of you being attacked by a shark are one in 11.5 million! Those odds are rather interesting, considering so many people have this fear. There are a lot of other possibilities, that may seem strange, but are actually much more likely to get you killed than a shark attack. Welcome to the world of the weird and bizarre.

1 Black Friday Shoppers

via:Sexto Round

If you're a sensible person, you probably run at the mention of Black Friday. It's the day after Thanksgiving when people go rabid for discounted items, and it happens every year. But why has this happened to America? It is a sad fact that you're more likely to be trampled to death at a Black Friday sale, than to be killed by a shark in the ocean. So, next time you are out and about on Black Friday, shopping for that thing you just can't live without, maybe it will pay off to be remember that in that instant, you are probably safer in the water with the sharks, than you are in the middle of a crowded mall, waiting for the "best sales" to be unleashed. Maybe you are better off spending your shopping money on a plane ticket to sunny, southern California. Just something to think about.
