Not me obviously  :-\


A New Zealand man has been killed by a falling betting shop sign in London. (http://nz.news.yahoo.com/a/-/top-stories/16012681/freak-accident-kills-kiwi-in-london/)

The unnamed Kiwi man, thought to be in his 20s, was hit on the head by a metal sign which fell from a William Hill betting shop on Camden Road, Camden Town on Monday around 5pm.

The 9m-long sign fell from the shop front onto the pavement striking the pedestrian.

He suffered a cardiac arrest and was treated at the scene before being taken to University College Hospital where he died a short time later, a Scotland Yard spokesman said.

Just wondering what the odds of that happening are ?.

What are the odds of a helicopter falling on you as you walk to work through the streets of London?

Dunno, but I don't think I'd go betting on it  ;)

There is still a surplus of virgin sheep available in New Zealand although even there the ratio has shrunk from 30 to 10 per New Zealander. Wellington boot sales are holding up!
