Not sure if this is true, about murderers
« on: August 16, 2018, 01:18:16 AM »
At 26.2 new people per day, the average American meets 717,225 people throughout their lives, of which 10.76 are likely to be unapprehended murderers.

There’s a lotta math to it, & variables.

Well that's disturbing, although I do know two convicted murderers, so there might be some truth to it.

Absolutely believe this. We run into gangsters ALL THE TIME in public, we just don't know. Just the other day there was a Hell's Angels member riding in my small ass suburban town. Not saying every gangster is a murderer obviously but, well, a lot of them are.

I guess so, huh.

I find stuff like this easy to believe, as i’m not a ‘people person’, which is why i wondered how true it actually was.

NEVER trust the funny ones. Or the quiet ones. The rude ones are iffy IMO, and the polite ones are just straight up hiding sonething if you ask me.

Well, I know several people that have killed others; my father ('Nam); grandfather (WWII); uncle (homicide; he just paroled a few years ago); a great-uncle (beat a man to death in a boxing match); a couple of gang-related incidents. Probably a few more if I really think about it.

I didn't click the link, but I wonder if your socio-economic status plays a significant part?

I wouldnt count war vets for this category, but thats just me.

I’ll let someone else cover the socio economic part, as that sounds way too apt to get racial w. a quickness if actually discussed.

How many people are at your work?  How often do you go out for food, or coffee, or whatever?  How many people do you briefly talk to on the street if only something minor like "Excuse me".  I think you interact with more people than you realize.

I don't meet my coworkers every day. Do you think I live in some kind of weird Memento/50 First Dates scenario? Is that who this statistic applies to?

When they say meet, I don't think they're talking about meeting for the first time.
