I, pro, will defend the position that mosquitos, do in fact, kill more people than sharks.

My proof is proved in this wikipedia entry: A shark attack is an attack on a human by a shark. Every year around 100 shark attacks are reported worldwide.

The debate structure is first round acceptance, second round arguments (no rebuttals), third round rebuttals/defense, fourth round rebuttals/defense. My opponent is familiar with the wording, and definitions are not needed. Have fun!...
