Looking ominous :
From 1948 to 2005, 17 people have been killed by alligators in Florida — about 0.30 deaths per year. In 2006, so far three alligator-related fatalities have occurred — a tenfold increase over the trend. If this keeps up, 30 people will die next year, 300 in 2008, and so forth until in the year 2013 the United States experiences a shocking 300 million deaths by alligator. At that point, we’ll be begging for immigrants.
