Only 77 deaths? That's nothing!
Falling is the leading cause of home injury deaths; it claims nearly 6,000 lives per year.
Maybe we should all wear air bag suits...sort of like the Michelin man.
I didn't say it was a leading cause of deaths. It is a significant
hazard, and if you are one of the ~9 daily victims of a gas fueled
fire/explosion and loose your home, you'll consider it a significant
hazard as well.
If we lower the highway speed limits nationwide by 20 MPH, we'll save lives.
And if we lower the speed limits another 20 MPH, we'll save even more lives.
Heck, let's lower all speed limits to 15 MPH so virtually no one is ever injured in a car.
Think of the children, aren't their precious little lives worth it?
Nope, you just don't like the facts so you call me names. The fact is
that an independent source confirms exactly what I said. Even a couple
seconds of delayed ignition in a gas furnace results in a (small)
explosion. A gas leak that has to travel any distance before it reaches
an ignition source will certainly produce an explosion of some varying
size. That one last year was so large it killed the neighbor's and left
only a crater where the subject house used to be.
