    TIL that Finland is about to get a 34 year-old lady as a PM. Should that happen, all 5 coalition parties shall be led by women, 4 of whom are under 35 years old.

    Pretty cool, hope they do well.

    They are counting actual deaths by.... so more people interact with horses and die than interact with sharks etc. and die.

    I saw a death count chart last night that had crocodile killings at a few zeroes more than horse deaths. But maybe those largely happen in Africa and India.

    I'm rather disappointed it wasn't done by terrorists who'd got the wrong International Strategic Reserve.
