The killer facts (that you may have made up) thread. (Polar Bears welcome)

The country where tourists are most likely to be killed or injured is Switzerland. On paper it is more dangerous than South Africa, Brazil and Zimbabwe (the figures are skewed by skiing holidays.)

More people are killed per annum by coconuts falling on their heads than are killed by shark attack.

More people every year die as a result of being kicked in their coconuts than from having their coconuts fall on their heads...

The last time I saw the statistics, the country with the highest murder rate in the world was Lesotho.

It's also the country with the highest lowest point in the world.

Polar bears, seen from the female perspective, are coloured ivory, not white.

No polar bear was ever killed by a falling coconut.

Most polar bears are not called Pete.

Polar Bears share 98% of their DNA with Coconuts. The other 2% is owned by coconut covering snowball confectionery manufacturer Tunnocks.
