Wired’s weird statement

with one comment

Take a look:

You say you want to be alone? Think again. Researchers have found that older people with fewer human contacts are more likely to die—even if they’re happy in their solitude—than are people with richer social lives.

I thought those with tons of human contact still died with 100% certitude—and it doesn’t get more likely than that. “You’re 125% likely to die”? I think not.

I know what the writer (probably) meant, but that’s not what s/he wrote, right?

  1. Good comment. I was always told there are two certainties in this life and they are death and taxes
