    It's not pessimism if there is a worse option, it's not paranoia when they are and it's not cynicism when you're right.
      85% of people didn't know that.
      Every 13.5 seconds someone in america suffers a severe head injury. Boy, am I glad I'm not that guy!

        Are you sure you're not that guy? You know, if you were that guy, you wouldn't remember.

        Some of them are gals, though head injury is largely a guy thing.

        Did you know that having a head injury greatly increases your chances of having another head injury?

      And the other 34.52% are wrong...

      There is no emoticon for what I'm feeling now.

      Actually, there are 10 types of people in the world; those that understand binary notation, and those that don't.

    Ah, yes!
    But what they don't want you to know is that 100% of non-smokers will die as well! ;)

      100% of all people who eat carrots die.
        In that case, I shall make sure not to eat any carrots. Then I should have a -100% chance of dying. :)
