[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Something I found on the net tonight from a austin site[/font]

[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]The AARP July 2006 issue reported the frequency of injuries occurring in the USA [/font]
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]as follows: [/font]

[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Brushing your teeth or gargling[/font]
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]3,925 [/font]
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Reading [/font]
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]11,243 [/font]

[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Barbecuing [/font]
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]15,952 [/font]
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Stapling paper [/font]
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]15,974 [/font]
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Bowling[/font]
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]17,916 [/font]
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Riding a stationary bike [/font]
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]43,117 [/font]
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Bicycling [/font]
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]584,883[/font]
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Driving[/font]
[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]2,788,000 [/font]

[font=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]So barbecuing may be more dangerous than reading, but less dangerous than stapling paper …and we all know the benefit of this flavorful delight is worth the risk vs. reward taken. (nbbqa 6/19/06) [/font]
The report is about the frequency of injuries, but does not report on the degree of injuries. Makes me think people on the whole are barbecuing more often than stapling paper. Besides have you ever tasted barbecue'd paper? Ineresting but not an in depth report. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
