“Newts. Many newts, such as the rough-skinned newt, produce a toxin that is ten times more potent than cyanide. They are only dangerous if you handle them and then don’t wash your hands afterwards, or if you eat the newt. “

“Living alone. If you get seriously injured or ill at home and you’re unable to reach a phone, your chances of survival are much lower than if you have at least one other person in the household.”

“Being knocked unconscious. Lots of popular media makes it seem like a minor thing that an average person can shrug off after a short period. In reality, if you are ever knocked out, then you have suffered brain damage. It’s possible there might not be any lasting effects, but it’s a serious injury and you 100% need to see a doctor if it ever happens to you.”

“A kind of random one, but don’t eat uncooked slugs or snails. They can have parasites that will make you paralyzed and eventually kill you. An Australian kid died a couple of years ago from it, an awful way to go.”

“Walking down stairs with your hands in your pockets. Never ever do it, especially not drunk. A fall down even 1 or 2 stairs with no hands to catch you can break your neck.”

That's twice in two days that I have read an article on here forewarning of the danger of changing garage door springs.
I have, thus far, lived for several decades without worrying about this issue.
Have I simply been an ignorant fool?
