That was pretty fuckin good. But the author of this doesn't give a detailed discription of the odds. If you understand statistics at all the odds given are mearly calculation based of a small number of occuances. Like the odds of picking the right door in a game show when you have 2 choices isn't 1/2 but actually 1/3. These odds are based of every episode of a game show with 2 doors ever televised. Which is some where around 3 million. With bigger numbers the odds are more presice. To know the actuall odds of dying in a airplane crash you would have to know of every death by crash since the Wright Brothers flight. Knoledge is Power.

^ You're literally half right, all you have is the numerator. You also need a denominator to obtain actual odds based simply on the arithmetic mean, namely the number of people who have ever flown in this case.
