Interview with Amram Shapiro, author of the book The Book Of Odds
What are the odds you’ll live to be 100? Well the odds are getting better all the time.
The older you get the odds of your living to 100 get better and better and better. So that when you’re 90 your odds of living to 100 are better than when you’re 30.
Amram Shapiro, author of the book The Book Of Odds...
1 in 10 people are left-handed more of these are men than women. 1 in 50 people have green or hazel eyes but more of these are women than men. And here’s one that I think is fascinating; it’s dangerous for a women to marry a man much younger than herself. There was a study done with 2 million couples and they found that women who marry a man 7 to 9 years her junior increases her mortality risk in a year by 20%.
The odds of on what people believe are interesting.
1 in 3 Americans believe in UFO’s , and 1 in 6 say they’ve seen 1. 1 in 4 believes that Princess Diana’s death was probably planned. 1 in 6 believe that the US government participated in or didn’t stop when it could have the 9/11 attacks. 1 in 8 believe the US government had a hand in the Kennedy assassination. 1 in 12 believe there’s a chance Elvis is alive.
About 1 out of 3 of us will lie in order to get a day off work. And 1 last 1 that’s kind of weird…
The odds that nobody will come to pick up the cremated remains of a family member are 1 in 100.
