Some 2005 violent death statistics

Apologies on the weak formatting, but here we go:
Why 2005? That's the most recent year for which I found stats on abortions. (So, yes my focus is biased.) Good news is that the abortion rate seems to be declining despite being a behemoth here. I have guesses of why, but I haven't studied enough to state hypotheses right here.

Feel free to add to or improve the data or to find better sources.

Oracle: We've got a bill of sale right here!

This is what Oracle reminds me of:

Cell phone Java a la Pete's Dragon follows.

Oracle: We got a bill of sale right here that says he belongs to us!

Google: You don't love him. All you've done up 'til now is break his heart. You'll abuse him, and just use him.

As for me, I'm sick of the corporate shenanigans in Java. And why didn't Google buy Sun when they had the chance? I'm getting tired of Java in general. But sorry Miguel, that doesn't mean I'm running to Mono. There are plenty more fish in the ocean.
