compared to being killed by a terrorist

Now let's compare against some accidental and homicidal causes of death:

You are three times more likely to die if you ride a bicycle.

You are roughly 10 times more likely to die if you ride a motorcycle.

You are roughly 20 times more likely to die as a pedestrian (that is, walking)

    You are roughly 50 times more likely to die in an auto accident.

      You are four times as likely to die if you ride a horse.

      You are twice as likely to die either boating or while riding in an aircraft.

      You are more than five times as likely to die falling down stairs.

      You are about three times as likely to die falling out of bed.

      You are more than ten times as likely to acidentally drown, and twice as likely to drown in a pool.

      You are twice as likely to suffocate in your own bed (accidentally) and about three times as likely to choke to death on your food.

      You are about as likely to be accidentally electrocuted in your home.

      You are ten times as likely to die in a fire (from either smoke or flames.)
