Goof-BALL? Ok.) Hear Dana ROAR about the legendary "Big 5." Just exactly how lethal are your day-to-day activities? Find out about the most dangerous jobs in America, and why Alfred Nobel was such a (smart) weirdo. And why a turn-of-the-century craze is still haunting France and France's wallet today.

Hi guys!

I love your show. I've just finished listening to the Danger Danger episode. You talked about the Big 5. Did you know there's also a Little Five? Something perhaps to investigate for a future episode....

Best regards from (jolly old) England,
Andrea

You mentioned Radium and some of the things that were made with it. The podcast Sawbones just did a great a episode on Radium I thought might interest you. Check it out. http://sawbones.libsyn.com/sawbones-radiation-therapy

I went deep sea fishing once and caught a blow fish. Gave it to the crewman who "cleaned" it for me and took it home and ate it. Had no idea it couldn't killed me. Life is grand...

I think it was an episode of Good Job Brain where it was noted that the scenario of a passenger having to land a plane because the pilot's been taken ill had never happened. It's just happened in Britain with a light aircraft, see here (unfortunately the pilot's since died).
