What the world worries about

In a bored moment, I wondered whether climbing really is all that dangerous – so of course I googled it.

As most people know – or certainly most people who’ve worked with Google AFS – the predictive text that shows up when you type in a search phrase is ranked in order of search frequency, excluding the rude searches (which unfortunate search editors have to filter out). This is what I came up with:


It’s quite amazing that people with sufficient education to spell “statistical likelihood” feel the need to question evolution.

I never did quite figure out the climbing stats, although it seems to be about 20 times as dangerous as skiiing – surprisingly, since I don’t know anyone who decides to hop on the end of a rope after a few hours of Glühwein and Rösti.
