This just in: Cars are a deathtrap on wheels, watch out for uneven pavement, and crossing the street could be hazardous to your health.
I know what you’re thinking. Just how long have the cars been plotting your demise?
According to a new study, it’s not really the cars that are the problem. They are merely an accessory in a much grander plot.
Who’s the ringleader? Your paycheck.
It seems there’s a correlation between the week after payday, and your chance of dying.

That depends. The results of that study haven’t come in yet.
It’s probably best to just stay indoors until then.
