Thirty-eight attacks out of a population of about 300 million. This means the odds of being attacked by a shark in the United States are roughly 1 in 8 million.

How do these odds compare to other dangers we face in the United States? See if you can guess.

I got 8/9 on this one.

Aced it. Of course, my odds of being attacked are pretty low since I don't "do" ocean swimming any longer. I've have to be pushed into a tank at Sea World to experience normal odds.

Deano -- so I guess Sea World in SAT is out if you ever visit ;)

No necessarily. But I'd have to insist you walk in front of me, never behind. :rolleyes:
