    You could turn this around too, you could say if we don't pray once a day, then aliens will come and kill us all. According to his argument we would have to pray now, even when it's stupid. So it's all about the weight you give to each box, and this weight is pretty subjective -> :/
    Well, it wasn't a bad try.

    Yeah utterly useless because theres no percentages. Also even if we did try to do something there is not even that great a chance we can reverse it by this point. So particularly unexciting fluff logic.

    well that makes sense I guess. If theres a possible risk, take action against it. That's what insurance is for neh?

    It my be fluff logic but its logic none the less. He is technically right.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Now that's just bull. Let me make a similar thread of logic.


    There is debate in the world, over whether giant monster crabs will come out of volcanoes and take over the world. Some people believe strongly that it is true...others hotly disagree it.

    Let us make a similar column.



    See, I even did the special "circling" he did, which just drives the point home so well.

    Now, what are we to do, looking at the columns? Column A's worst case is bad, but Columns B's covers all of Column A, plus crab impregnation. Come on, we can't allow that.

    "The only right choice, the only sane choice," is to spend huge amounts of money to stop crab attacks from volcanoes, we must prepare against this eventuality(forget for a second that I, like the guy in the video, have a completely worthless point, as I and he did not include doing something and still having the worst happen). Spread the word, forward this. In the internet age, you can change the world(self-impowerment hooks the suckers every time).

    I have shown my case, using the same fluff logic. Can you poke a hole in it? People do argue about this(notice, I am just as nebulous about who as he), "and it only way to stop this is for change in public policy for column A." A few hundred billion dollars is pocket change compared to mass human-crab impregnation. The cost benefit analysis is the same. Both columns have downsides, but the Column B. nothing, is far worse. Support the giant crab movement, before it is too late.
