Today at lunch there was the usual heated political arguments. One student said something about not voting. Another student told the first that he would just be a statistic. We're all statistics, I said. If you don't vote, you're among the (majority) population of college students who don't vote. If you do, you're still a statistic.

If you are a pregnant teenager, you're a statistic. If you're not a pregnant teenager, your a statistic. If you commit suicide, you're a statistic. If you live happily, you're a statistic.

Everyone is a statistic.

We're all just a series of numbers running through the tubes.
