From an e-mail:

Doctors vs. Gun Owners

The number of physicians in the U.S.: 700,000

Accidental deaths caused by physicians, on average: 120,000/year

Accidental deaths per physician: 0.171

-----

The number of gun owners in the U.S.: 80,000,000

Accidental gun deaths per year (all age groups): 1,500

Accidental gun deaths per gun owner: .000188/owner

-----

So statistically speaking, doctors are 9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners. :p

Fact: Not everyone has a gun, but almost everyone has at least one doctor.

Please alert your friends to this alarming threat!

------ End of e-mail ------


See... the proof is in the statistics!

And BTW, there were no exact sources given in the e-mail... the doctor stat just said "Courtesy of the U.S Dept. of Health and Human Services" and the gun stat said "Courtesy of th eFBI". No dates. :p

But stats don't lie people. This is scary!

Oh, and forward it to 20 people so your crush will like you.

That reminds me of this

There has been an average of 160,000 troops stationed in Iraq during the
last 22 months. During this time the firearm death total was 2,112 for a
firearm death rate of 60 per 100,000 (per month).

The firearm death rate in Washington DC is 80.6 per 100,000. That means
that you are more likely to be shot and killed in our Nation's Capitol,
which has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation, than you
are in Iraq.

Conclusion: We should immediately pull out of Washington, D.C.

That's no lie. I make drugs... I get to hear some of the drug complaints that customer service deals with.

One time a nurse went through the trouble of dispensing Lidocaine jelly (thick, and sold in a needle-less syringe for TOPICAL USE ONLY) into another container drawing it with a syringe and injecting it into a patient. Then they call our hotline to complain about the "broken" syringe and the large bump that formed on the patient after injection.

Just don't get sick enough to go to the hospital. That's all I gotta say.

What do you call the medical student who graduates last in his class?
The key word there is "graduates", so he is a doctor still, even though he won't be a very good one ;D
