We all know that famous Benjamin Franklin quote about death and taxes. As far as mortality goes, we’re all headed towards that common end, it’s only how we’ll meet it that is the big question.
If you’re wondering what kind of death you’ll meet and don’t want to rely on a crystal ball, this morbidly fascinating infographic from Best Health Degrees is going to be a great resource. The infographic illustrates with great clarity the kind of activities people participate in and the chances of dying from it.
The figures don’t lie. For example, if you’re a BASE jumper, you should already say goodbye to your family, friends and pets – 1 in 60 will die horribly from this stupid sport (if jumping out of a building isn’t a dead giveaway then it really is your sport). One of the safest activities is playing table games, 1 in 100 million can die from it. That one person could be a Words With Friends addict who just have to put in that killer seven-letter word even if he’s driving on the freeway.
More fascinating facts await you, so read on.
