I don't see many squirrels falling at all. I do wonder how many people are at all hurt by falling acorns, though. when caught at their peak, some trees seem to have mini rainstorms under them, except instead of rain it's a very solid, hard object that's falling.

Just one word: chestnuts.

0 because all squirrels are Ninjas. They often forget to pick up their little black ninja suits from the dry cleaners though, making them appear very un-Ninja like.

I'm joking of course, I don't really know why they don't wear their Ninja stuff.

The answer is: YES, people do get injured by falling acorns! The Purdue Squirrels (proper nouns) are infamous for being borderline psychopathic. A girl in my pledge class remembered our house because when she was standing outside during recruitment, a squirrel launched an acorn at her head. I get the feeling she's never fully recovered. In my own experience, they're just clinically insane. One once came right up to me, scurried in an octagonal pattern, and ran away. Evil.

Open to suggestions as to what my sig should consist of...
