i actually thought this interesting so wanted to post it

Each year more than 150 people are killed by falling coconuts and is more than 60 times more likely to be killed by a falling coconut than bit by a Pitbull.

A child is more than 800 times more likely to be killed by their caretaker than by a pitbull.

Makes you think...Maybe we should ban coconuts, and be more cautious of who you leave your kids with!

Coconuts totally need to be banned, I find it too hard to open the shell thefore it should not exist.

LOL! I happen to love coconuts... but I know that picking them is a big responsibility... since I have done my research, I feel I may be ready to rescue one and am confident mine will be an excellent ambassador for the fruit!
