Learn to Logic

Bill O’Reilly figures out why Canadians live longer.

Bill O’Reilly: Here are the letters. Peter Gillies, Victoria, Canada: “Has anyone noticed that life expectancy in Canada under our health system is higher than the USA?” Well, that’s to be expected, Peter, because we have ten times as many people as you do. That translates to ten times as many accidents, crimes, down the line.

Um… yeah… okay….so let me explain statistics. Life expectancy is based on per capita figures, so the number of people in the country isn’t relevant….

Oh, the hell with it.
