Whenever you're feeling a bit low about doing something a bit stupid, don't worry just think of this lot and imagine how much worse it could all be.

-In England this year 11,000 people will injure themselves trying new or ambitious sexual positions.

Falling vending machines will kill 13 people in the next 12 months.

-In America 800 people are injured each week by their own Jewellery (how? )

The main library at Indiana University sinks an inch every year because its architects failed to take into account the weight of the books it would contain

-Einstein could not speak properly until he was nine-his parents thought he was mentally retarded.

-Five per cent of Canadians do not know the first 7 words of their national anthem but DO know the first 9 words of the US one.

51 cars veer from the roads in Amsterdam every year and end up in the canals.

At this moment 0.7 % of the worlds population is intoxicated through drink-a third will cause themselves or others injury.

Five residents of Tokyo die each year from injuries related to bowing to others

This year in England and Wales 7 people will die after falling out of bed or a chair....

hey epona, actually, when i was stationed in germany, it happened about every couple of months, would see where someone was trying to get cans out of soda or beer vending machines, start rocking it to shake a can loose, and get the whole machine over on them, promptly crushing them. or, pull it over on themselves trying to get their arm back out of the discharge chute. darwin award honorary mentions, everysingle one of them, especially since everyone knew about it, to boot! hehehehe....oooops, forgot, kinder, gentler, forum, please insert properly sympathetic snicker here please________ ROFL
