Two wonderful things

May 7, 2009

It has rained heavily every morning  this week.  In spite of this, Wednesday afternoon was positively amazing.  So I went for a little ride:

1:29’48, 27.40mi
avg 18.3mph, max 41.6mph
?ºF, Odo 781.9mi
Cadence: all over the place

After this wonderful ride, I cooked dinner for myself and a friend, watched Donnie Darko, and generally had a great time.

At work, I discovered these great numbers:

Activity Fatalities Per Million Hours
Skydiving 128.71
General Aviation 15.58
On-road Motorcycling 8.80
Scuba Diving 1.98
Living (all causes of death) 1.53
Swimming 1.07
Snowmobiling .88
Automobile Driving .47
Water Skiing .28
Bicycling .26
Flying (domestic airlines) .15
Hunting .08

Biking is half as lethal as driving a car. Half! That is exciting news, isn’t it?
