Geez, what is the deal with these motorcycle-riding gunmen? They've been popping out all over the news all year! Is there a new gun-toting bike club we don't know about?
What's strange is the victims couldn't be more different from each other. A newly-arrived OFW in Sampaloc, Manila. A senior BIR official in East Avenue. A government employee in the Quezon province. The head engineer of a government hospital and a village councilman, both in Caloocan. In Quezon City alone, seven people were killed in separate shooting incidents yesterday!
What sucks is the cops don't even have a clue what these gunmen look like. What are their motives? Where do they usually operate? Are these acts of robbery or do they gun random people down for fun? Were these victims just in the wrong place at the wrong time?
We mean, at this point, we believe it could have easily been us.
So that's it—we're never stepping out of the house ever again. Do you have any idea how dangerous it is out there? If we don't get killed by motorcycle-riding gunmen, chances are something else will. Read on to see what we mean!
The odds of a person getting shot by someone are 1-in-325, which is very alarming. It's scary how easy it is to kill another human being.
The odds of a person dying from a vehicular accident are 1-in-100. Do you know what this means? It's more common to get hit by a car than to go to the dentist. Did you hear about the man who got hit by a Ferrari while waiting for a bus in Ayala last week? He wasn't even crossing the road! How would you explain that?
The odds of a person getting struck by lightning are 1-in-83,930, which makes it highly unlikely. So what do you make of the two-year old boy in Zamboanga who died from a lightning strike last November? Perhaps that's just Mother Nature being unreasonable.
The odds of a person dying from a vicious dog attack are 1-in-147,717, but you'll have a better chance at surviving if you listen to Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan. Click here to read what FHM learned from his one-man show last month!
The odds of a person dying by means of drowning are 1-in-8,942, which explains why people generally don't mind going to the beach. Here's the thing though: The number of people who went to Boracay during Labor Day weekend was much more than that. May nalunod kaya?
