I'm afraid the "150 deaths per year by falling coconuts" is a thoroughly debunked urban legend, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_by_coconut

The actual answer seems to be lawnmowers, with 70 deaths per year in the US alone (https://www.newsweek.com/lawnmowers-kill-more-people-bears-sharks-alligators-each-year-1529280, http://enablingthefuture.org/2017/07/12/lawn-mower-accidents-are-the-leading-cause-of-amputations-for-children-in-the-usa/, https://sunnewsreport.com/new-report-on-the-dangers-of-operating-riding-lawnmowers/ etc)

you do realise that there is the rest of the world outside of the US where the number of coconut related injuries/deaths would be more significant.

not too many coconuts trees in the US id imagine.

I'm not sure the toilet/cellphone one makes sense... It's not really an individual possession the way a cell phone is. If a family of 4 has one toilet in their house, who owns it?

Also, I think this could use another minute.

I'm guessing it means access to a toilet. The explanation for that question may be strange, but it also makes sense to me. One of the biggest shocks when I visited my grandparents in rural Bangladesh was a brand new, bright, glistening Huawei store in the midst of a village with huge piles of trash and tons of rickety old shops that lacked basic sanitation services.
