Americans are as likely to be killed by their own furniture as by terrorism. Can you give me more examples like this?
I just came across this article in The Atlantic and it got me thinking about how difficult is is for us to gauge risk and what we should worry about.
Another example: I’ve heard that you are more likely to be killed by a pig than a shark.
Could you give more examples where people would be more worried about the less likely occurrence? Or where it is hard to gauge the riskiness of something?
