    We got some math wrong. The annual fatality odds for licensed drivers in the US is actually 1 in 6,000 which translates to lifetime odds of about 1 in 75.

      Excellent video, mostly. A quick comment about the final image in the video: assessing risk requires lots of data gathered over long periods of time. Without such data, good, solid, unambiguous data, it's impossible to assess risk, unless one makes assumptions; which, as you pointed out, are nearly always wrong. So when it comes to a new threat, the risks involved take a very long time to be made clear. "Erring on the side of caution" can be a good and useful rule of thumb, but exactly what "caution" is depends on those very assessments of risk that more often than not are unclear, highly debatable, or open to interpretation. Moreover, as many of these comments show, exactly how one is to interpret statistical data can be complicated in itself, adding further to the difficulty of assessing risk.

      You also didnt include the incredibly high risk of injury with mountain biking. Just because its not fatal doesnt mean it doesnt carry significant risks. Chopping a finger off probably carries a relatively low risk of death, doesnt mean its safe or that the outcome doesnt matter just because its not death.

      Even 1:6000 is overstates the risk of driving. In what % of these fatalities was the driver drunk or sleepy or tired? You have to exclude that number, since in the common case of getting in your car you're none of those things, and certainly were factoring that in to our risk assessment.

    1 in 55,000 chance of dying for walking outside is way lower than the 1 in 1 chance of dying of thirst or starvation by never going outside. Also, someone's life could be worth an infinite amount and they would still choose to go outside because by doing so they are participating in their life while wrapping yourself in bubble wrap and hiding in your bath tub to minimize chance of death would mean no longer living your life so at that point you may as well just end it as it is already over. I'm not trying to poke holes in your logic just trying to prove you can't make the messy human experience logical. But if the many worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics is correct then you really don't need to worry since every time you die there will be a world where you didn't and if dead people don't know they're dead then you'll always know you're alive. Although this doesn't save other peoples lives because when they die the version that lived is now in a separate version of your universe, but as long as you are alive you can rest easy knowing you're not dead, and if a version of you has died then you can rest easy not knowing a version of you is still alive.

    To be fair, the risk of the unknown (at the time, nuclear power) is, well, unknown. Because of ignorance, nuclear power, in their minds, could potentially have the capacity to kill everyone on Earth because the non-experts didn't know enough about it to confidently say otherwise. We accept nuclear power now because there is a more widespread understanding of the actual level of risk (extremely low). If you didn't know anything about nuclear power apart from the name, you would be foolish not to put it on the top of the list because you didn't know enough about it. The scientists on the Manhatten Project gave a non-zero chance of the first atomic bomb igniting the atmosphere, killing everyone on Earth because it was an unknown - people didn't know anything enough about it.

    Here is a very cynical way to see the value of life graph: Some would argue, that when a few unrelated people die on a plane crash or terror attack, then they leave behind many of their closest friends and family in grief, but on the other hand at a genocide there are fewer people in grief left behind, because thes are killed too. Well thats of course an absolute bizarre argument, but just from a rational perspective...

    2:54 But there are more drivers than there are mountain bikers and more people driving cars than mountain biking at a particular time. So theres a higher chance that someone in a car is going to die because there are more people doing it at a given time. So, comparing mountain biking to driving a car wont work, it should be the car-airplane statistic

    This mountain biking analogy is wrong. More skilled people choose to mountain bike while driving has a lot more amateurs so it looks like it’s lower accident. Driving is almost required for certain people so it has to be taught. Plus you probably won’t die in a mountain biking accident.

    Your individual risk isn’t accurately captured by any of the generic 1 in X. There are so many variables that influence exactly where you might fall on the spectrum. A human, all things being equal, might have that 1 in X risk but all things are never equal. In an Actuarial sense with a massive sample size these might help you price risk and make money but they’re meaningless to an individual person.

    All calculated risks are models with finite variables. Sample size of mountain bikers, their demographic, their extra carefulness, etc. are distinct from the multitude of drivers +65, sleep deprived, careless. These simplified factored analyses don’t actually answer anything, risk generalized has no effect on the risk of the a single data point/ a single individual.

    There is one more thing about risk of driving. It is the amount of hours we spend in that activity. If we go mountain biking a few times a year, and we drive 10hours a WEEK, than comparing year to year is not correct way

    That last frame of maskless people amidst a crowd. The irony of it all is that given the level of protection most masks offers isn't all that high - when compared to professional i.e. expensive and scarce alternatives - and when the density of humans per square foot increases past a certain threshold, it's main function becomes not that of protecting the user but the beholder, the neighbour, the fellow citizen, the human right next to you riding the subway that you'll likely never see again in your life - acting as a shield against large particles that me, and you emite at any given time, coughing, sneezing, talking and breathing. Recall a very famous line from "300", as I parafrase "the shield I yield guards not my life, but the life to my left and the shield to my left its left in an unbroken line of shield and spear we stand", something like that, the concept is very much the same. You see I've come to realize that there can never be a point beyond what is already obvious and beyond repair, that if were I to be infected I could actively protect the people with which I have already crossed paths and sown the seeds of desease unknowingly. So I wear a mask proud, I wear it consciously and refrain from taking it off in the proximity of acquaintances and strangers, not because I am a stuck up sheep of sorts like some would say, but because you matter, your loved ones matter, everyone matters. Love your show, thought I'd share. Stay safe.

      I believe there is mistake in the math by 10x. There are 227 500 000 licensed drivers in the US and 38 800 road fatalities in 2019. 227,500,000÷38,800 = 5863. Odds of death are 1 in 5863 per year. The odds are even lower as these numbers include passangers and pedestrian deaths as well, not just the ones of licensed drivers.

    I’ve never been like this... To me, entering a car is far scarier than mountainbiking because I’m aware of the risk, as are most people, yet their actions will reflect the opposite. It’s been my quest for many years now to figure out why everyone I know is so incredibly irrational... I’m not sure I will ever succeed. I guess a more useful question would be why I’m different, but would I want to hear the answer?

    Driver is more dangerous because of other people. That dumass that can't stop checking their phone for the most urgent of things, someone liking their picture or post, or people doing makeup or eating or really anything besides focusing on the road. Mountain biking is basically free from someone else impacting you. Only your actions will effect you, unless your in a densely packed group and someone crashes but I would imagine most keep some distance and have smaller groups if not just being by themselves. Man is the most dangerous game, it is and always will be true.

    1. Select a color and, depending on the number of players, count out the "armies" you'll need to start the game. 2. Roll one die. Whoever rolls the highest number takes one Infantry piece from his or her pile and places it onto any territory on the board, thus claiming that territory. 3. Starting to the left of the first player, in turn, everyone places one army onto any unoccupied territory. Continue until all 42 territories have been claimed. 4. After all 42 territories are claimed, each player in turn places one additional army onto any territory he or she already occupies. 5. Continue in this way until everyone has run out of armies. There is no limit to the number of armies you may place onto a single territory. 6. Shuffle the pack of RISK cards (maybe, remove the Mission cards) and place the cards face down by the side of the board. This pack forms the draw pile.

    You got some words wrong, too, sadly. Risk isn't the balance. *Risk is the negatives*. Specifically, it's the product of cost and probability. The positives are "reward". It's balancing the two that humans generally suck at.

    With mountain biking you also didn't include the incredibly high risk of injury of mountain biking. Just because theres a low risk of death, doesn't mean it doesn't carry significant risks. Chopping a finger off probably carries a relatively low risk of death, doesn't mean that its safe or that the outcome doesn't matter just because its not death. Any mountain biker will proudly tell you the litany of injuries they've accumulated through the sport. Same with football. Risk of death is low, risk of an injury that follows you around for life is a lot higher.

    Using today's data yes, you are more likely to die driving a car than riding a mountain bike. But if everybody mountain biked as much as they drove I doubt mountain biking would be safer. To put it in other words : I'm willing to bet driving for an hour is less likely to injure or kill me than mountain biking for an hour. Not saying human perception of danger isn't flawed. Just saying driving VS mountain biking is a bad example.

    3:10 - Driving might be more riskier than mountain biking in the sense that you are more likely to get into an accident. But at the same time, since you defined risk in terms of balance of negatives and positives, people are more likely to get more positives out of driving.

  74. Deltarious

    The logic in the intro is incorrect and false. It presupposes that one's reason for going outside isn't directly linked in some way to their continued survival, and thus that one is *required* to take on some short term risk in order to guarantee longer term survival. If you wait long enough inside doing nothing, the risk of death becomes so high due to factors such as, you know, starvation, that the risk of going outside is smaller than the risk of staying inside and doing nothing about it. Remember, that you assented that one should choose *never* to go outside. It also completely disregards the notion that one's mental well being is tied directly to their ability to continue their own life and thus in order to preserve one's self at least some level of risk must be accepted or else the risk of serious mental harm and thus eventually of death is also present (I am of course assuming that for the vast majority of people some level of physical and/or social contact is required and not optional). Thus it is entirely false to claim that one cannot value their own life infinitely based on this logic alone, as each time your infinite multiplication is cancelled out by being balanced against infinite value of actions taken with the ultimate outcome of preserving the self. It is true, however, that most people do not value themselves truly infinitely, as there is an inherent concept of 'living a life worth living' for most people. However your logic is just flat wrong.

    There are some problems with your calculations of perceived risk. But first - our risk perception is NOT flawed. It works as intended but it is suited for life in nature not in civilization. That explains almost everything bizarre about it. 1. Walking outside - in the nature walking has risk but this risk is small if you are in a familiar area - you know if there are predators or other dangers. In the nature there aren't fast moving 2 tonne objects to crush you. Loud car sounds aren't natural - you can recognize a galloping predator by its distinct noise. In our streets the noise is normal so we don't pay attention to it and the environment feels safe. 2. Mountain biking vs driving a car on the roads - moving fast with your body basically exposed in Rocky hills is definition of danger in the nature. There is very high risk of getting injuries. Remember we perceive and asses the risk of injuries too not just death. Braking a leg in the nature is almost equal to dying - you can't move, find water, food or shelter and you are guaranteed to die if there is no one to help you which was probably the case back in the ancient times. In a car you are protected by the vehicle from some injuries which gives a sense of security. I had two car crashes with both vehicles totalled and I had absolutely no injuries. Also the calculations are skewed by the level of professionalism in both activities - regular mountain bikers are much more experienced in this activity than drivers. People drive of necessity but ride bikes because of passion and that pushes them to get better. Also if you don't feel good you don't go biking but you drive around. And you drive every day opposed to biking which you plan ahead and do only whenever you want it. If you look in the statistics and compare the risk of driving a motorcycle and a car you will see that pretty much lines up with our natural perception of risk. 3. The diminishing perceived tragedy of large number of people dying. People don't have a natural sense of scale for large numbers. It is really hard for someone to imagine a million people but far less so to imagine 50. Also as you mentioned with increased death count every life becomes less valuable. 4. Perceived risk of unknown - it makes a lot of sense in the nature. In unknown terrain you don't know what and where are the dangers to you. If you go back to the walking on the streets you feel more safe in your town/city/village even in the dark backstreets rather than in a foreign place where you tend to stick to main roads and avoid unknown streets and roads.

    The mountain biking example is misleading. The statistic of death is so low BECAUSE its regarded as being dangerous whereas driving doesn't have the same level of deterrence. Which means only careful and skilled people mountain bike whereas people of all skill levels drive. If people of all skill levels mountain biked I can assure you there would be quite a bit more deaths.

    No, infinity times "anything" is not infinity. Infinity times 0 is always 0.

    first question is so stupid- mountain biking is far more dangerous. 💀 a 13 year old can drive

    There is a huge flaw in your view on the risk evaluation between mountain biking and driving. If everyone who drives decided to start mountain biking with skill and knowledge of mountain biking at comparable levels to their driving skill, the mountain biking death rate would go up through the introduction of low-skill hobbyists. People also don't get the opportunity to drink and mountain bike, or text while mountain biking. There's also the fact that people drive everywhere, people don't mountain bike to and from work but they do drive, so there's a huge difference in frequency of the activity.

    Risk isn’t the “balance of negatives and positives”. It’s the measurement of exposure to potential loss or harm.
