Sun kills 60,000 a year, WHO says

Arrest the bastard!

As many as 60,000 people a year die from too much sun, mostly from malignant skin cancer, the World Health Organization reported on Wednesday.

I always knew the sun was our enemy. Sitting there in the sky looking down on us waiting for its chance to pounce. Oh well, I guess we're going to have to take this one on the chin and chalk the sun up as one of those necessary evils. Actually, I'd say it's safe to say that the sun is the ultimate necessary evil.

It found that 48,000 deaths every year are caused by malignant melanomas, and 12,000 by other kinds of skin cancer. About 90 percent of such cancers are caused by ultraviolet light from the sun.

Great, the center of our universe is a serial killer.

NO. The Sun doesn't kill people, stupidity kills people.

We all KNOW you can get skin cancer from lolling around in the Sun all day, do we stop? Do we fuck!

I wish folks would take responsibility for their actions.

Can you imagine THAT headline from the WHO!
