Things that Will Someday Manage to Kill Off the Human Race*:
10. Band saws, table saws... pretty much any kind of saw that plugs in to the wall. I'll stick to the kind that work on human power, thanks. 9. Throwing gas on a campfire because it's dying out. 8. Backyard trampolines-- because kids don't have enough ways of injuring themselves already? 7. Working on high structures without appropriate safety equipment-- unless you can fly, not a great idea. 6. Inserting large objects into body cavities that I'm fairly certain God intended to make "exit-only" 5. Anything that involves building a ramp 4. Riding bikes without helmets... why make a potentially minor injury a potentially major one? 3. ATV's/Snowmobiles (depending on the season, but the injuries are interchangable) 2. Motorcycles, regardless of helmet use 1. Not wearing seatbelts. Seriously... I can't believe that people still get in a car and don't buckle up immediately. Are they stupid, or just have a wicked death wish?
And yes... every single one of these is based on at LEAST one case I've seen this week. Welcome back to medicine.
