Natural Hazards

A new study demonstrates where nature has killed people in the United States over a 34 year period. Heat and drought accounted for the most deaths, nearly 20% of the total.

I guess Chuck Norris doesn't count as part of nature because, as chucknorrisfacts.com points out, "The leading causes of death in the United States are: 1. Heart Disease 2. Chuck Norris 3. Cancer."

Also, this is worth noting: "Chuck Norris destroyed the periodic table, because he only recognizes the element of surprise."
