I hope you get better Bill, and I sympathise with you 'cos I'm suffering
like hell from all the tree pollen at the moment.
I'm self medicating; red wine and prog rock from the 70s. Can't see that
going down too well in an LPA office though.
I hate statistics ... It's like flying or crossing the road ... What are
you supposed to do with those figures such as one in an x chance of
crashing or being snuffed out? You still get on the plane and cross the
road. It's all about cost analysis and acceptable risk of doing nothing.
Not about safety.
Know what you mean but the numbers do work themselves out, eventually (or
probably) and that's really what we're trying to aim for; a bunch of numbers
that will show we've been prudent when hindsight eventually comes to the
I suspect crash helmets are flying off the ski-store shelves after the death
of that actress last week, but the odds of that particular sort of death
probably remain exactly the same. Er, well, perhaps anyway.....
