More Fear Fun Facts from Pop Sci.

If you fear the world, it's not necessarily better to just stay home:

  • An estimated 280,190 toilet, shower, and bathtub accidents sent people to the ER in 2002.
  • razors were linked to 33, 532 injuries.
  • hot water - 42, 077 injuries.
  • 23,283 sink injuries
  • each year, about 400 people unintentionally suffocate or strangle themselves in bed.
  • air pollution is 10 to 50 times higher indoors than outdoors.

And if you do decide to go out:

  • half of all bills and coins carry infectious germs
  • 5 people a year are killed by falling vending machines
