I read a report the other day that death rates are falling in the UK. As I was saying in a recent post, I like numbers, and I am fairly good at Maths. On the basis of my love of numbers, I would like to correct that report. I might sound like a boring, gloomy accountant, but death rates are not falling, they never will. They will always be 100%.
The problem is that we tend to go for quantity. We concentrate on “more”. If there is more of something, then it must be more important. We ignore the few.
