Potential for growth[edit]

...and not in a good way. Pointless list is eternally incomplete, and pointless. Dihydrogen monoxide plays a part in any number of deaths each day. Electrons flow in both natural and artificial currents, which have had lethal results. Lead projectiles are typically the products of human artifice, and so should not be on this list. Venom, infection, accidental blunt trauma from falling tree branches, and on and on. Why do we need this? Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 06:00, 24 February 2013 (UTC)

Delete - potentially endless list[edit]

I agree. Vaporize.--ZooGuard (talk) 08:37, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
Maybe. I suppose that the intention is to link it to Naturalistic fallacy. Perhaps the list creator could explain?--Bob"I think you'll find it's more complicated than that." 08:43, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
Definitely delete...or move to fun. Sam Tally-ho! 09:49, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
Fun could be a good move. Black humour, with examples. If not, delete as potentially endless and therefore useless - you could get tetanus after a scratch off just about anything, for a start. SophieWilder 10:34, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
I noticed we have a "list of gods Christians don't believe in", so I thought maybe I could create a flippant list about lethal natural things.--Krejtalk 18:07, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
I added the first round of silly things to make exactly this point. Nailed a retread to my feet and prayed for better weather. 14:43, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
I moved it to fun but still...it isn't really funny. Acei9 19:47, 24 February 2013 (UTC)
Since "natural things" can cover everything from herbs to animals to diseases, this is a potentially bottomless list, & completely pointless. A list of unnatural things that can kill you (machines, pharmaceuticals, manufactured products) would actually be shorter, though still exhaustive & pointless. Delete.
