Afraid of sharks? This should put you at ease.

While not f*cking things up at work, this week, Ajumma's been sitting in waiting rooms at doctor offices. Today I learned the following stats while reading Newsweek:

1 in 280 million
Odds of being killed by a shark. Only about six people die in shark attacks annually.

26 million
Number of sharks killed annually by humans

Here are some I looked up:

1 in 8 million
Odds of being attacked by a shark

1 in 2 million
Odds of being killed from falling out of bed

1 in 700,000
Odds of being killed by a dog

1 in 5000
Odds of being killed in a car crash
