Weird Stats of the Day: Toddlers killed more Americans than terrorists did this year
Opposing Views brings some frightening (though obviously tongue-in-cheek) statistics about the future of America: more American lives have been claimed by gun fatalities involving American toddlers than terrorist attacks this year. In the past five months, a total of 11 people were killed by preschoolers with firearms compared to the four that perished in the Boston explosions — the only terrorist attack to occur this year. We can only hope the NSA will ramp up surveillance on children less than 5 years of age in order to counter this threat to national security.
Spanish child abuse foundation invents the most brilliant anti-child abuse billboard ever
Created for the ANAR Foundation (Aid to Children and Adolescents at Risk), this street poster uses lenticular lensing to show one message to adults and another message to children 10 years or younger at 5’4” or shorter. This way, if children are being abused by their parents and they don’t know where to turn, the poster shows them a “secret” message that their taller parents or guardians wouldn’t see. Brilliant.
