If you watch the Discovery Channel series 'The Deadliest Catch' then you know why fishing is more dangerous than being a police officer, which came it at number 10 with only 18 fatalities per 100,000 cops.

The other dangerous jobs include: logging workers at 91 deaths, aircraft pilots and flight engineers at 70 fatalities, farmers and ranchers come in at 41, mining machine operators at 38, roofers [pretty obvious why] at 32 and so on.

If you're on this list, you might want to buy some life insurance.
