They forgot to list water. 100% of people who have consumed water have died.

The gun safety thing confuses me.  If everything is locked up, how much time do you have during a break in?
Sep 24, 2013 10:57PM

I don't know why they would put guns on that list. They're only dangerous if it is my hand !!!

Ask any 'BURGLAR' around here !!!

They had to make the list 14 long so they could squeeze guns onto it......

Clean your dryer before AND after?  If you do one, why do you have to do the other?  Who writes this stuff?  Five year Olds?

The gun thing is liberal media BS and saves more lives then anyone killed by accident, just more Hitler BS.

Oh, more liberal "lets get the guns", and why?.. anyone ever thought about why there is all this "concern" for other peoples safety, when society could care less if foreignors from south of the border leave American workers penniless, most goods are manufactured in china for the profit of a few, and average folk can't afford a college education unless its paid for by government(especially for illegal aliens, getting the education I was denied even though I grew up poor in a trailer park). So don't tell me anyone really gives a second thought about "safety" by banning guns, just think about what the real agenda is behind gun banning, a police state, and no freedom potentially at all except what we are told is "freedom".

there are so many things that can kill you that it's impossible to list them all.

How about defective appliances?  These aren't dangerous?

Sep 25, 2013 8:51AM
The deadliest are the pins and needles I have walk on not knowing what's going to set the old lady off.

Yes, keep your guns unloaded and locked up...IF YOU'RE AN IDIOT!!

Kind of an expensive paperweight, don't you think?

Who is dumb enough to use a portable generator INSIDE their house? Some of these simply sound like nature cleaning out the gene pool.

The sheer amount of deadly drugs sitting in medicine cabinets around the country makes me shiver.  There's probably more prescribed drugs sitting out there unusued than crack and meth on the streets.  Just waiting for a kid to get to them, and OD...

How about toasters.  I know 3 people that started their homes on fire with toasters. Check the insurance institute??

Why wasn't food mentioned? It seems like there is always some type of recall or people dying from tainted cantaloup or sprouts.

"Never leave a gun unattended while cleaning it."
