Are we, as humans, any different? All it takes is one crazy person, a drunk guy behind a wheel or a simple accident to be the end of you. And a lot of people have hobbies or professions that come with severe risks.

It's clear he's well aware of the dangers and has taken every precaution. Anything else that happens is out of his control. Like everything else in our everyday lives.

What math? No one crunched the numbers to find out if you're statistically more likely to get killed by your pet tiger or a drunk driver because it's not a common scenario.

It's common sense. We drive cars that are meticulously built to be safe on impact and keep people alive, we test people at young ages several times before letting them drive one. And we have police on a constant 24/7 hour watch to find those who are unsafe.

A tiger is a tiger, there's nothing special you can do to stop it from snapping one day, all the training and socializing you do still doesn't stop it from being a wild undomesticated animal. If a drunk driver hits me on the road odds are I'm going to survive the accident, if a tiger bites me on the neck with intent to hurt me, odds are I'm going to die.

level 6

There are 30,000 deaths via car accidents in the united states alone every year.

While there are only 85 tiger attacks every year in the entire WORLD

so sure, tigers are really really dangerous, but you are 35,000 percent more likely to be killed then you would b via a tiger.

now sure this doesnt take into account the fact that most people arn't around tigers 24/7 like this guy is but regardless of that im putting my money on the tiger being safter than your car.

and btw, i only used US traffic death's, where as the tiger death count is around the world

and of course we are only talking statically, so sure one or two guys like this guy may get brutally mauled to death ever year by a tiger, but many many many more people die via car accidents each year. and no one forces you to drive a car.

Your stats are retarded, the majority of people ride in cars daily, the majority of people won't ever see a tiger in real life. Your comparison makes no sense, if you wanted to make a fair comparison you would be taking stats of how likely you are to get in a car accident if you're a daily driver, and how likely you are of being attacked by a tiger if you wrestle with one daily. Which those stats don't exists since it's such a small pool of people.

I don't even understand how you can think these two numbers have anything to do with tigers being more dangerous than cars. I live in the heart of ontario, the likely hood that I drown in the ocean is near impossible considering I'm a 15 hour drive away from the nearest coast. Does that mean that swimming in the heart of the pacific during a storm is safer than me driving my car in a storm? No.

You're an idiot.

It must be freeing in a weird sort of way to know exactly how you're going to die some day.
