• Not quite = They can hurt ya pretty bad, but they can't bite a hole in ya!
  • Falling coconuts:):)
  • Nahh..but thrown coconuts can
  • i would say whacking them over someones head would be dangerous, but if you could do that with a shark, now that would be lethal
  • You have more of a chance at being killed from a falling coconut, than being killed by a shark. "In the mid eighties, the British government asked scientists to calculate the likelihood people would die from various causes. The study was meant to convince people nuclear power was safe, and there were many ways to die that were statistically more common. Along the way, the scientists came to some interesting conclusions about how people the world over kick the bucket: An asteroid kills one person every 7,000 years. Imagine being that unlucky. You have a 1 in 300 million chance of getting killed by a shark, or die in a fairground accident. Go ahead, that roller coaster is super safe! The odds of getting killed by a falling coconut are slightly bigger: 1 in 250 million. Unless you live in Finland, then it’s 1 in 3,897,546,999,056,000. Chances of dying in a plane crash: 1 in 11 million, although those odds go way down when you don’t fly. Getting killed by lightning: 1 in 10 million. Those are the same odds as getting killed by escaped radiation from a nuclear reactor. Except if you live near Chernobyl. Dying in a terrorist attack: 1 in 9.3 million. Burnt by hot water: 1 in 5 million. 1 in 4.4 million: chance of a left-handed person dying from using a right-handed product. 1 in 3.5 million: snakebite. 1 in 3 million: food poisoning. 1 in 2 million: falling off a ladder. 1 in 685,000: drowning in the bathtub. 1 in 500,000: dying in a train wreck. 1 in 43,500: getting killed during work. Worse odds if your last name is Pastorelli and you live in Jersey. 1 in 8,000: dying in a car wreck" -
  • "Falling coconuts kill 150 people worldwide each year, 15 times the number of fatalities attributable to sharks," said George Burgess, Director of the University of Florida's International Shark Attack File and a noted shark researcher.
  • More so, but be careful with statistics. A person living in Topeka, KS, isn't really in any danger from a shark. An abalone diver in northern California is. Statistics are often averages. If I work in a coconut plantation, I'm wearing a hard hat. But if I'm a professional surfer or diver, I'm looking out for sharks.
  • coconuts
  • Yes.That's why I've always told you to wear a helmate but,you never listen.
