  •  What does "most" mean in this case? (0+ / 0-)

    Sometimes most means "more than 51%" (i.e., an absolute majority)

    Other times it just means "more than by any other method" (e.g., 13% die from head injuries, 12% die from drowning, 11% die from lung puncture, 10% die from heart failure, etc etc . .. ).

    •  Well I guess what the commenter was talking (1+ / 0-)

      about was most.

      The most common causes of injuries for survivors were being hit by flying/falling debris and being picked up or blown by the tornado. Probable causes of death included multiple injuries (50%), head injuries (23%), chest trauma (18%), and traumatic asphyxia (10%). The proportion of deaths among injured persons was higher in mobile homes, apartment buildings, and outdoors than in houses. The vast majority of persons received television warnings; few persons received warnings by weatherband radio. here
      Soooo put on your bicycle helmet and put on the kid's bicycle helmets. You got 'em, it won't kill you. But you know what, you should get to a shelter too. Keep your helmet on and get in a shelter.

      It's simple.

      Get the 'oopsie' out of 'keep and bear arms' see GunFAIL and Gun Crazy diaries weekly.
