Women - How to Avoid Terrible Things Happening To You

Inspired by one of those awful "how to avoid getting raped" lists.

1. If you're walking to your car late at night in a dark alley, make sure you reconsider. Car accidents much more likely to kill you than anyone lurking in a dark alley. Walk home instead, statistically you are doing the smart thing to stay safe!

2. Serial rapists could be lurking anywhere. However, if you're seriously worried about being raped, stay away from the people most likely to rape you - your husband, boyfriend, and male friends and family members.

3. Avoid dangerous places. The most dangerous place for a woman, where she is most likely to be attacked, is in her own house, so stay out of that. And this isn't because of break-ins - it's because of the people who live with you, or who you invite in. So, stay at Starbucks or something.

4. If you're thinking about jogging alone in a park, and are concerned about safety, think about this - far, far more people die from heart disease that was preventable with exercise and sensible food choices than random attacks.

So, basically I should become a nomadic marathoner? ;) I can save what I normally spend on rent on running shoes!

I like the idea of a feral pack of nomadic marathoners roaming the country. There's a movie script idea in there somewhere....
