What are the odds?

Have you ever wondered what the odds are that a person may have to visit an emergency room due to a drinking straw accident? Or what the odds are that a person with an income of over $100,000 will shop at Wal-Mart in a given year? Thanks to a new site, Book of Odds, you can finally find out.

The site also lets visitors find, well, odd comparisons based on odds. For example, in the United States, the odds a man who has ever been married or is living with someone has cheated during the relationship are 1 in 4.76 -- the exact same odds that that an adult in the United States never uses swear words in conversation.

Be warned, the odds are good that you'll enjoy spending a lot of time sifting through all the data!
