There is a 1 in 65,092 chance that I will die from contact with hot tap water

The National Safety Council provides this handy chart providing information about your chances of being crushed to death by a large reptile, hit by lightning, and many other causes. Some of the odds are frighteningly high (1 in 216 people die of intentional self harm by firearm, for instance) while others are quite reassuring (there is only a 1 in 397,784 that my demise will be due to the nips of nonvenomous insects or other arthropods — whew!).
