How will you die?

Many people would really like to know how they are going to die. They consult everything from CNN to The Psychic Friends Network. But in the end, fact is, you're dead. You can die however you want to or you can just let it happen. However, if you'd like to live dangerously, here's the likelihood of death, ranked by odds.

May I suggest that I find a few of these odds to be hilarious. For instance, only 1 in 71 people can get suicide attempts right. And the fact that they have a statistic for death by Space Debris means that it has happened at least once. And for those of you with Selachophobia, the fear of sharks, you may rest assured that yours odds of being killed by a shark are apparently the lowest odds possible. (Next to being killed by Space Debris, of course). And the fact that dying in a hailstorm is 80 times more likely than drowning to death is the most surprising to me.

I cannot vouch for the accuracy of these 100%. Statistics change daily. Additionally once the odds got past 1,000 I began rounding off the numbers. Death from plane crash statistics are pre-September 11, 2001, and also are heavily dependant on the airline and country you are flying in. Anyway, now the part you probably already skipped to...
