Actually when I posted I was thinking those odds are pretty bad. The odds of dying in a car accident are 1 per 100,000 miles. Raise your hand if you've driven at least 100,000 miles.
The world is a dangerous place. But we're programmed to accept those dangers and essentially ignore them. It's probably healthy to get an occasional wake-up call (as the OP did) to keep us vigilant about those dangers we can control. But it's also good to keep relative risks among different activities in perspective.
