You see a headline like that, you just can’t not read the article, right? I mean, if we’re less likely to die in Dubuque than in Tucson, hey, let’s all move there. Today!
But you know there’s gotta be a gimmick. Too good to be true, and all that. Well, at least they don’t keep you waiting . . . the gotcha’s in the very first sentence: “A new map plotting deaths resulting from forces of nature reveals where Mother Nature is most likely to kill you.” Oh. They’re talking about the weather. Bastards.
If I start inserting words like “celeb” and “sex” in post titles, will more people read my blog?
