  3. Danger posed to us by pistol-packing soccer moms in the cereal aisle at Wal-Mart: not real.
  4. Being 75% more likely to be killed by a friend or family member than by a stranger: real.
  5. Ghosts, angels, gods, demons, devils, ancient astronauts, bigfoot, flying saucers, homeopathic “medicine”, and cow-mutilating aliens: not real.
  6. Being more likely to die of heart disease, cancer, or chronic lower respiratory disease than from all other causes of death combined: real.
  7. Vaccines causing autism: not real.
  8. Measles, mumps, and whooping cough making a comeback because parents decide not to vaccinate their children: real.
  9. Conspiracy among scientists to promote “the global warming scam”: not real.
  10. Global temperatures increasing faster than was predicted 20 years ago: real.
