#41: New York State of Mind
This useless fact is equal parts funny and disturbing. The fear of being bitten by sharks can keep many people from swimming out in the ocean, and for good reason. Shark bites have fascinated us for a very long time, so it’s understandable to think that there are a lot of shark bites that occur every year.
In reality, according to this Reddit user, there are more people bitten by other people in New York alone than there are shark bites in the world. Read that sentence again and really let it sink in. So, the next time you’re worried about being bitten by a shark, remember that you have a higher chance of being bitten by someone in New York!
