    Not sure about the statistical reliability on this one but it's humorous..

    Forget gun control!! Read on . . .

    Think About This:
    A. The number of physicians in the US is 700,000.
    B. Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year is 120,000.
    C. Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171. (US Dept. of Health & Human
    Services)

    Then think about this:
    A. The number of gun owners in the US is 80,000,000.
    B. The number of accidental gun deaths per year (all age groups) is 1,500.
    C. The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is .0000188.

    Statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times more dangerous than gun
    owners.

    FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR.

    Please alert your friends to this alarming threat. We must ban doctors
    before this gets out of hand. As a public health measure I have withheld the
    statistics on lawyers for fear that the shock could cause people to seek
    medical attention.

    A. there are 1,135,000 divorces annually.
    B. 100 percent of divorces begin in marriage.

    Fact: divorces are caused by marriage.

    You cannot fight battles in this day an age with statistics. They are fun but ultimatly useless.

    *sigh*
    I think in the 4 years that TFL was in existence, this bit was posted something like 35 times.

    It had to come up here at some point, I suppose.

    Not at all.
    Doesn't hurt anything by being posted here. Gives thread to reference to next poster. Just gets old after a while.
