OT: Things that make you go HHMMMM!

I just found this in my e-mail and thought I would share!
Where do people get all the time?




Guns and Doctors:


Doctors:

(A) The number of physicians in the US is

700,000.

(B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians

per year are

120,000.

(C) Accidental deaths per physician

is

0.171.

Statistics courtesy of US Dept. of

Health Human Services.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Now think about this:

Guns:

(A) The number of gun owners in the US

is

80,000,000.

(Yes, that's 80 million!)

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

(B) Accidental gun deaths

per year, all age groups,

is

1,500.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

(C) The number of accidental deaths

per gun owner

is

.000188.

Statistics courtesy of FBI

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

So, statistically, doctors are approximately

9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Remember, "Guns don't kill people, doctors do."

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

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 completely out of hand!!!!!

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Out of concern for the public at large,

I have withheld the statistics on

lawyers

for fear the shock would cause

people to panic and seek medical attention.

Signed, A concerned citizen

Re: OT: Things that make you go HHMMMM!

yea thats been around for a while now

I get a kick out of it whenever i read it.

i wish it was a logically valid arguement....would be alot easier to make a pro-gun arguement if it were

speaking of that......i always get a big kick out of the multi-piece signs you see on the highway

they always have some catchy phrases....make driving in the midwest way more entertaining
