Then: Pigs, Now: Sand Beat the Sharks :-)

Then pigs beat sharks as a higher risk, and now sand does it: a quote from Bruce Schneier:

"At the beach, sand is more deadly than sharks: 'Since 1985, at least 20 children and young adults in the United States have died in beach or backyard sand submersions.'"

The article that he quotes is called - not surprisingly - "Sand More Deadly Than Sharks at Beach" ...

And some of us think we understand risk :-)
