Quiz: Which ridiculous death will be the end of you?

This will kill you dead

Did you know that cows are 40 times more likely to kill you than a shark? Fact. Also, coconuts and champagne corks. Horses, hot tap water, ladders. Petula from Susin Nielsen’s FANTASTIC new book ‘Optimists Die First’ has a point.

Maybe we ARE better off being a little bit glass half empty? Just a little. Especially if we’re going to be offed by an icicle or by simply being LEFT HANDED!

So apparently if you’re left handed you are five times more likely to die in an accident than a right handed person. It’s not illogical. It’s also logical to be 100% head over heels in love with the cover for this book too. IT’S A BEAUT, RIGHT?!

Reasons why ‘We Are All Made of Molecules’ is your next read after ‘Optimists Die First’:

QUIZ: Are you the Geek or the IT Girl?

And this is what makes it so hard for Petula not to be ruled by these statistics. After her little sisters dies in an accident inadvertently caused by her own crafting obsession… Can you blame her for taking EVERY precaution in life?

There’s nothing wrong in being careful, but you can’t live your whole life like Petula. It would hold back your badass potential. But just for funsies, we’ve made a quiz based on some of those more ridiculous stats.
