Yesterday I wrote a post...

...about a guy who keeps a handgun within reach at all times, even when taking a shower. (Seriously.)

Today, in the Science section of the Times, Jared Diamond writes that the odds of falling in the shower are about one in a thousand. That means that in the next three years, if you take an average of one shower a day, you can expect to fall at least once. On the other hand -- really -- how often is our friend going to need that pistol? Wouldn't he be a lot better off bringing a walker into the bathroom than a firearm?
