The only dangerous animals where I live are the young guys that carry knives thinking it makes them tough. I live in an area with a lot of druggies and there's always fights. There's been 2 guys stabbed just out front of where I live in the past year, and I live in a small country town in Scotland, not a big city like Glasgow or London.

it's safer than in Katschenreuth here
today we've had huge snow flakes and they didn't vanish on the ground ...
the biggest threat is Edi Stoiber (PM of Bavaria)...

I'm just happy to live here (with the point of view of a geologist)

Hon, I live most of the time in Hollywood, I have pit vipers, back stabbers, scene stealers, it's like a damn murder's row. And that's just at my Academy lunches!

Hmmm, London:

bushfires - more chance of lottie dodd winning wimbledon 2005.
hurricanes - last one in 1987, best ask michael fish when the next one will be.
tornadoes - bout 40 each yr in UK but last very short time, unlikely to develop in an urban area though.
earthquakes - we do get them every year, mostly in wales and the west midlands like the dudley quake a couple of yrs ago. biggest one in recent centuries was situated off north-east coast i think in 1906 it was like a 6.1 so again i don't think the 'big one' is gonna hit any time soon.

crime - we got plenty of it down here, a gay guy was murdered on the south bank just last week and there's enough robberies and muggings to go around.

Basically in London you just gotta worry about the people!

When George loses his false teeth and misses his nightcap, my place gets VERY dangerous! Low flying toupees are lethal.

I live in Virginia...its pretty safe for the most part here...we have a lot of Military bases around us in the Hampton Roads area..and we are near a lot of water so we have to worry about Hurricanes every now and then....other than that...i guess the only other thing I can think of is dangerous is Bush as our president for the next 4 years.

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!

My area is pretty good, there are some other parts of Toronto that are sketchy, but the part I live in has petty crime and here and there. Most common in terms of "danger" are speeding teenager's driving their dad's car, low-scale drug use (ie. pot, ecstacy), muggings (for chains etc.), minor vandalism and petty theft.

When you mentioned "bush-fire" I thought of something else, too.
Aachen is a city build on a former vulcano I heard (no danger anymore). We have earthquakes from tims to times, but nothing seriously.

bushfire is not related with George W. Bush
i mean real Bushfire like they are often in Australia or California

I know matthias. I am not stupid, but it would be quite interesting to see other people's opinion about Bush. He is a catastrophy for many non-Americans.
