I love comparisons and unit conversions. Most of the times they are fun. For example, if Daniel Day-Lewis touched an Oscar made of antimatter, he would level Los Angeles with an explosion bigger than Mt. St. Helens. See, fun!

But comparisons are sometimes shocking. The infographic below shows how many people die each year from shark attacks compared to how many sharks we kill each hour.

They aren’t man-eaters, they aren’t blood-thirsty maniacs…but they are sure exterminated like them.
