1:10,000 risk
      #265466 - 08/13/12 01:37 AM

Here is a short list of things that also carry a 1:10,000 risk just so people can put things into perspective.

Being killed by lightening that hit someone else

A newly built dam having a total collapse

Having serious complications from taking birth control pills

Having an allergic reaction to an eppie pen (used for allergic reactions)

Having a baby with downs

Dying from shock alone ( meaning no other life threatening injuries) (this assumes also that you are not a fish in a bowl)

Dying from a tree falling on you

Dying from a blood transfusion

Being in a flood

Being in a landslide

Getting an infection at an injection site (blood draw needle stick)

Internal bleeding to point of death from a liver biopsy

A headache being a brain tumor

Being killed by a grizzly bear

Being killed by an airplane crashing into you

Being bitten by a maleria carrying masquitto

Space junk hitting a satellite or space shuttle

Being able to hold a perfect pitch vocally

Getting hpv through oral sex

Dying from arsenic from planting the garden

Just a short list of all the 1:10,000 chances/risks. So to be worried about getting HIV via unprotected oral sex where you are the one doing the oral you would also need to be just as concerned about all of these. As far as the ones receiving the oral sex well that's even a lower risk so really nothing to worry about.

Just figured I would put it into perspective.
