Fun Fact: Deadly Vending Machines

Filed under: Fun Fact — Stephen aka DigitalEagle @ 3:37 pm

Always research chain emails before you send them out. I’ve seen several emails that claimed things that were untrue as revealed by a quick search on Google.

Besides, you may find out other interesting facts while researching … like this one: Vending Machines have killed more people than Sharks!

Actually, I would like more information. From what little I have heard, sharks normally maim people rather than kill them. I would like to compare injuries instead of fatalities in the quest for the deadliest award. But, I don’t think I want to spend the time researching.

  1. I want to know how many people die from drinking too much of what’s in the vending machines. I would submit that they are dangerous without even having to fall on you.

  2. Good point.

    Especially in Japan where they sell alcoholic drinks and cigarettes!
