I sustained the most serious grilling injury of my long and illustrious barbecuing career over the weekend when a chicken tender flared up and singed my hair. I needn’t tell you that this near-tragedy really brought home the dangers of gas grills and tequila-based marinades. So naturally I went to George Mason University’s stats.org website — the oracle of indispensible statistical information on the Internet — to find out how close I came to losing an eyebrow. Here’s what I learned: Your risk of being involved in a nonfatal grilling accident is 1 in 86,830 — but 1 in 66,191 if you’re a guy. Kids 9 and under are at the greatest risk — 1 in 41,239, or 1 in 33,509 for boys alone/Steve Crump, Twin Falls Times-News. More here. (SR file illustration)
