Discussion in 'The Lighter Side' started by obiestreasures, Jan 14, 2009.

  1. Doctors vs. Gunowners

    Doctors



    (A) The number of physicians in the U.S. 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 U.S. Dept of
    Health and Human Services.
    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>



    Now think about this:

    Guns



    (A) The number of gun owners in the U.S.
    80,000,000.
    (Yes, that's 80 million)


    (B) The number of 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 withheld the statistics on

    Lawyers



    For fear the shock would cause

    People to panic and seek medical attention!
     
  2. This would be funny if it wasn't so damn true. My wife works in an Intensive care Unit during the night shift and every 6 months she gets a new bunch of interns to deal with. Without fail everyone of them does something (or wants to do something) that will kill their patient and she has to convince them to call the attending doctor to prevent it.
