Default interesting fact from mythbusters

falling coconuts kill almost 10 times the number of people who are killed by shark attacks each year.

[shark attacks claim 15 people per year, according to them]

[im inclined to believe them]

I heard on another show , I think it was Man Vs. Wild, that alot of people are killed each year by falling coconuts. I don't think they said 150 though (10x15) but I'd be more inclined to believe Mythbusters.

On a side note, I wonder how many people a killed each year from Kieth Richards falling out of coconut trees.
