1 Million ways to die... Bush Republicans are still cowards!
Our priorities are all wrong (from Wired News):
In fact, your appendix is more likely to kill you than al-Qaida is.
With that in mind, here's a handy ranking of the various dangers confronting America, based on the number of mortalities in each category throughout the 11-year period spanning 1995 through 2005 (extrapolated from best available data).

Also check out this great quote that derails George W. Bush's bullshit 9/11 speech this week:
"If the war on terror is really a "struggle for civilization" itself, as President Bush claimed last night, why do we have just 130,000 troops in Iraq?
"You would think that if America were really engaged in such an epic battle -- 'for all the marbles,' as one friend paraphrased it -- we would put up a bigger fight."
