It omits a graph for Western Europeans, which has a huge "we hate ourselves and everything we've done in the past" segment occupying 90% of the left of the curve.

Or maybe that's just the English.

As Europe descends into a terrorism hellhole,  Poland sleeps at night. Who's cracking Polak jokes now?

Maybe that calls for another referendum.

I wonder what percentage of Americans have actually been to Europe (or could find it on a map)?
More people die from bee stings than die from terrorism.

Is that a real statistic? A nice one to remember if it is.

We need bees.  We don't need terrorists.

Bean strings or bee stings?

Bee stings, and yes in most countries it is true. Check yours.
That is why we just get on with our lives.

The headline you might be referring to was from the Telegraph in 2010 and the data I found was

Year   Bee stings
2001    0
2002          0
2003    0
2004    3
2005    1
2006    1
2007    3
2008    2
2009    0
2010    1
2011    1
2012    1
2013    0

Which is still out of date but would suggest that at the moment more people die in the UK from terrorism than bee stings but it's still a vanishingly small number of terrorist deaths.

That is why we just get on with our lives.

Forty people died from bee, wasp or hornet venom in Canada during a 12-year stretch ending in 2011, the most recent period for which national numbers are available from Statistics Canada. In other words, an average of 3.3 Canadians died from bee stings each year. That compares with 10 deaths by lightings and 1.25 deaths per year by bear attacks. Number of deaths by terrorism in Canada is indeed smaller than number of bee sting fatalities. 

Sadly, the number one killers in the country are the doctors prescribing wrong medications.   
As it turns out, 138,000 or one in every 18 patients admitted to a Canadian hospital in 2014-15 suffered some kind of harmful event that could potentially have been prevented, from getting the wrong drug to developing an infection, a report released Wednesday has found. Of those 138,000 patients, about 30,000 had more than one adverse event that compromised their care. Of the 138,000 patients identified in the report, 17,300 or one in eight died while in hospital. And these are just the reported cases.

Why would anyone want to terrorize Canada? It is inconsequential in world affairs, you can't walk to it, and if you occupy it, you'd have to actually work, otherwise you'd freeze to death.

And I always thought it was due to the alertness and ferociousness of the RCMP officers.

Besides, no virgins if you die from doctor errors, or, god forbid, such unmanly events as bee stings.

More people die from bee stings than die from terrorism.

And more people die of old age than of bee stings or terrorism. What's your point?

Like BobShaw said, Europeans "just get on with their lives."  (The lucky ones, that is.)
