So you are unable to understand very basic questions of probability?

You can smoke every day of your life and die at a 100 from exhaustion after sexing a pair of 19 year old twins. That doesn't mean smoking isn't bad, and isn't detrimental to society.

I wonder how common it is to be utterly unable to separate anecdote from reality. Seems more common on the right.
