Who is ridiculous ?

(><) A pychiatrist told me the story of a worried boy. He was concerned, properly enough, about dying.

He was afraid of being bit by a rabid dog. Ridulous, said the doctor, that's a one in a million shot.

What about cancer of the pancreas? "Very rare," said the doctor.

How about being hit by a meteor? "Bizarre," thundered the psychiatrist, "that's a one in million chance..

"But," said the boy, "one is number."

The boy was right.

All the fractions add uo to 100.00 %

We all go out in a box. Nothing is as certain as death and taxes.

It is scary. But probably less scary than living forever.
