This started when you pounced on my by saying
"So we're excluding all young adults. I mean, there have been studies on this stuff. Young adults have less than half a brain that is all ego, and extremely stupid decision making skills."
Now you are saying statistically they are MORE LIKELY to be at risk, this contradicts they have "extremely stupid decision making skills" as a whole.
Which is it, jeesh man...
