The Economist: How you are unlikely to die

A handy-dandy chart to read just before bed. The Economist takes causes of death and breaks them down into odds. Apparently, you’re more likely to die from walking than by alcohol or cycling. Huh.

Now that I’m good and paranoid, I’m heading to bed. Look out for asteroids and bees!
