I’ll leave the philosophical arguments around free will to someone who managed to sit through more than one philosophy lecture before switching to Scottish History – but I did like this paragraph:-
“Deborah Arnott, with her cold abstractions of statistics, says “half of all smokers will die from their addiction”, but as we know the other half will die of something else (she’s not offering immortality), most people laugh or shrug their shoulders.”
Some bikers will be killed on the road. The rest of us will die of something else. Statistics and scare stories won’t persuade me to exchange the freedom to roll open the throttle and ride away from the cares of the 9 to 5 for the safety of staying at home.
