    These are the type of blind statistics that insurance companies use to steal your money.
    By the way, under `canoeing`, the image seems to depict a kayak.

    Why change the scale? 0.0145 in 100?

    Why not just say 1 in 6900 like the rest??

    Hmm- kinda interesting that cycling is listed as a sport- not a mode of transport, i wonder if those who cycle for sprot are more risk taking than those who do it for transport... expect so.. I box- but probably not in a manner that will cause me injury- it is very ladylike boxing.

    Cycling depends. I cycle a couple of times a week when the wather is clement, ut it`s pretty lazy cycling on bridlepaths to the pub for lunch. Twelve mile round trip and maybe a mile of that on quiet roads, so I reckon I`m safe. Mind you, I did, even so, manage to dislocate my shoulder when I turned a corner on a familiar path to find it had washed out. As I slid over the edge of the seven foot drop to the river bank there was that moment of clarity, `Damn, this going to hurt.`

    @nettech98: Yes, it`s a terrible thing to mix the reporting methods!

    @LordJim: Your link & post are indeed good ones!

    @Andrew155: Yup! Since there`s no way to compare different rates, few mention if it`s localized or global, and some are just obviously wrong. It`s pretty crappy.

    It`s a pretty worthless list. It goes from what are your chances of dying of something whether you do it or not (sky diving) to what are your chances of dying of something if you do it (base jumping) without any explanation.
