Comment 20 by Schrodinger's Cat … More people die falling down the stairs at home than on all the mountains of Britain every year.

Whoops! Can’t let that one go, not here :)

I’m no statistician and don’t have the raw data, but I hypothesise that a lot more stairs are ascended each year than are mountains.

(And now I can't help wondering whether any professional mountaineers have ever died by falling down their own stairs.)
