Death rates for different jobs

Post by Tobias_Marco » Wed Oct 30, 2013 11:33 pm

<I just found some numbers from 2004 that I thought were kind of odd.>
Annual death rates per person:
U.S. military forces in Iraq: 0.5%
Inner city black teens during the 1990s: 1%
Inmates on death row: 2%
Foot soldier in a gang: 7%

<How messed up is this?!?>

I heard once that dentists have the highest suicide rate. I never quite understood that.

<I wonder what the suicide rate is for people who work the suicide hotline.>

I find that morbidly hilarious.
I have a horrible sense of humor, I know.

<Then again maybe people who work the hotline are very happy, their life doesn't seem quite so bad after comparing it to the lives of some of the people they talk to.>

I've spoken to a few humans who were suicidal before, and some of the stuff they say can make you feel depressed. Despite how necessary it is, I honestly believe that working at a suicide hotline must be one of the worst jobs for the employees.

<Yeah, I think I've heard that as well, but the thought does strike me that it could happen.>

Really, it is a selfless job. I have some odd views regarding suicide (which I won't share here since they would be very controversial, plus the fact that they're really not needed), but I think they are some of the real heroes in this world.
