How to stay Safe in the World Today

I received the following as an email from my dad! :)

> *Avoid riding in automobiles because they are
> responsible for **20 %** of all fatal accidents.
> Do not stay at home because **17 percent** of all
> accidents occur in the home. (that's 37% already)
> Avoid walking on streets or sidewalks because **14 percent** of all
> accidents occur to pedestrians.(now that's 51%)
> Avoid traveling by air, trains or buses, **16 percent** of accidents involve
> these forms of transportation. (that's 67%)
> Of the remaining 33 percent, **32 percent** of all
> deaths occur in hospitals. Above all else avoid hospitals.
> You will be pleased to learn that only
> **0.01 %** **of all deaths occur in a synagogue,**
> **and these are usually related to previous physical disorders.
> Therefore, logic tells us that the safest place for you to be at any
> given point in time is in Synagogue.
> Torah Study is even safer. The number of deaths
> during Torah Study is too small to register.
> For safety's sake, go to Shul as often as
> possible, and attend Torah Study.
> It could save your life!
> Author Unknown
> PS: You don't have to be Jewish to go to shul. You may
> not understand what the old guys are saying but sometimes they serve
> wine in paper cups.*

Of course the article does leave out two great dangers of learning in yeshiva . . .

- skin cancer from sitting near the glass door or under the sky light

- blunt force trauma from a sefer falling off a high shelf.
