I really hate when people use their anecdotal evidence to “disprove” scientific facts.
A guy was talking about radiation in Japan and said, “I was there and I’m fine” which was supposed to be a therefore-radiation-isn’t-a-problem response.
A. There’s a wealth of evidence to the contrary.
B. One person’s short term exposure does not disprove that radiation is a problem.
C. Cancers develop over time. You don’t smoke a cigarette and immediately get lung cancer.
I made the knee jerk mistake of saying, “let’s see how your thyroid is in five years,” which was a totally asinine thing to say and I feel like a jerk, but shit I hate those kinds of arguments. One guy starts talking with all the authority he can muster to say he’s fine. I haven’t been attacked by a bear, after living near them for twelve years, but that doesn’t mean they’re harmless, and it also doesn’t mean that you’re going to be attacked by one every time you see one.
People are dumb and I’m tactless.
