    When they said "take out the bride and groom", they meant "to dinner"!

    11 Dead At Pakistani Kite Festival

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/11-dead...kite-festival/

    "At least 11 people died and more than 100 people were injured at an annual spring festival in eastern Pakistan celebrated with the flying of thousands of colorful kites, officials said Monday.

    The deaths and injuries were caused by stray bullets, sharpened kite-strings, electrocution and people falling off rooftops on Sunday at the conclusion of the two-day Basant festival, said Ruqia Bano, spokeswoman for the emergency services in the city of Lahore."

    I love third world country insanity. You couldn't make that up if you tried.

    in 2020, 20,000 Americans died by shooting (including 300 children), and additional 24,000 suicide by gun. Yep, I love third world insanity too!

    "People have been seriously injured or killed while kiteboarding, and that is not good for any sport. They've been slammed against piers and breakwaters, buildings and parking lots, or thrown up in the air like marionettes before free-falling from impossible heights"...

    Over 40,000 by automobile, too.

    Medical malpractice estimates vary from 45,000-400,000.

    Excessive used of alcohol apparently kills around 95,000 people per year in the US.

    I think I like my odds with guns better. Been shooting since I was 4, am now 66. One of the ways to reduce the gun death statistics is to get folks properly trained in gun safety. There are 4 primary rules of gun safety:

    Treat all guns as if they are always loaded.
    Never let the muzzle point at anything that you are not willing to destroy.
    Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on target and you have made the decision to shoot.
    Be sure of your target and what is behind it.

    Guns do not shoot themselves, generally speaking. Some person points them at themselves or another person.

    Something else the statistics you quoted ignores. Defensive use of guns in the US are estimated at about 1 million per year. Not all of those defensive uses result in a person being shot, either. https://www.ammoland.com/2021/09/sub...#axzz76jNn8d00

    Personally, that's not exactly how I would do it, but it seems to have worked.
