There is a hell of a difference to dying of a heart attack or other ailment and being shot to death at a cowboy / cowgirl concert.

I do not know how to explain it to you though.

11. Suicide 1.3
12. Chronic liver disease and cirrhosis 1.1

Funny those are side by side. Wouldn't happen to relate to alcohol abuse now would it?

77% of suicides are Male, and 56% of those are caused by gun fire.

So... nice try?

Apparently: there are people dying today, who have never died before!

They built a beautiful new cemetery up on the hill. People are dying to get in there!

We could take into account the geographic areas too. Things such as Homicides

In America...
St. Louis, MO 60.37 Homicides per 100,000 people
Baltimore, MD 51.14 Homicides per 100,000 people
Detroit, MI 44.60 Homicides per 100,000 people
I'm surprised Chicago isn't higher on the list.

In Canada...
Edmonton 4.28
Winnipeg 2.97
Vancouver 2.05
Surrey 1.54
Toronto 1.5
Nothing compared to US mind you there's 10x difference in population. I'm surprised Edmonton's is that high. Pretty close to Detroit if you multiply by 10.

Damn St. Louis though.... That's a lot a murders. 300,000 Population = 180 killed a year = like 3 Vegas shootings a year.... damn

You must be math illiterate. What the data is showing is you have a much greater chance of committing suicide than being murdered by someone. I think it's important to keep some kind of perspective when it comes to the news.

Comparing suicide to murder is like comparing elephants to pomegranates. A "chance" of committing suicide????? Suicide is a personal choice made by an individual to end their own life, it's not chance....it's choice. There is a chance of being murdered by someone which we have no control over.

The odds of dying at the hands of a murderer are much scarier. Illnesses have a possibility of being cured and many times are. There is no hope or cure from being murdered. Like being killed in a car accident, it is sudden, violent.

Now if the list would have listed automobile accidents instead of illness it would make much more sense.


Nearly 1.3 million people die in road crashes each year, on average 3,287 deaths a day. An additional 20-50 million are injured or disabled. More than half of all road traffic deaths occur among young adults ages 15-44.
asirt.org/initiatives/informing-road-users/road-safety-facts/road-crash-statistics


But every year this many people die in the US:


Number of deaths: 2,626,418.
FastStats - Deaths and Mortality www.cdc.gov...


So logically and statistically, the 15,872 murders every year is nothing compared to the total number of deaths. But almost half of the deaths in the US are from car accidents. We should be very afraid to travel by automobile. It only makes sense.

I think suicide is like a type of murder, and it's illegal, but it's rather hard to prosecute.

People kill themselves in St. Louis, because it's St. Louis. Have you never heard anyone refer to the entire state itself as Misery?

Is it in the dead centre of town?
I would have thought the main reason for death was lack of breath.

I always find these lists interesting because they are listing the distal cause of death rather then the proximal cause which is always heart failure.

Walk in a dead-straight line from there, up Kick-the-Bucket Lane, up onto Croak-Hill.
You know: the place where they had that horrible plane crash last week.
A two-seater Cessna crashed into the cemetery: local officials are still digging-up bodies, and the count has reached 714 so far.
