Not Sure I Like These Odds

Odds are 1:36 that you will be killed by some sort of accident. There's a 1:81 chance that the accident will be while in a car, and 1:202 [questionable, krb] that it'll be by a firearm. A few more - 1:344 from poisoning, roughly 1:1500 by an asteroid (about the same as dying during a sports activity), 1:4837 by a terrestrial falling object, 1:10455 by drowning in a bath tub, and 1:29,860 from being caught between two objects. Finally, there's a 1:130498 chance that you'll suffocate yourself with a plastic bag. These, compliments of researchers at Princeton University.
