You have more chance of being killed by a coconut than a shark


This is obvious, far more people take selfies than go near sharks. More people are injured opening packets of crisps than injured by sharks. This information doesn’t do anything. It doesn’t tell you anything of substance or value.


In literature it’s described as man vs self.


You can die from a selfie everywhere…sharks not so much.


TIL more people stub their toes on coffee tables than they do on any of the pyramids of Giza
