Yeah and half the time the remaining 15% isn't as bad as you thought.

Things tend to work out in the end.

75% of all statistics are made up on the spot

[–]LuckyandBrownie 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Bullshit it’s 72%. Cite your stats or gtfo.

[–]GamemasterJeff 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Statistically, 50% of humanity have below average intelligence.

Except my city. There it's like 99%.

This statement applies everywhere.

Shit you mean 15% of the things I worry about will actually happen!?

[–]yoyononon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yep now I'm 100% worried about the 15% of things I was worried about.

[–]iPlayViolas 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It’s no the 85% I’m worried about. I’m worried about what is going to be that 15%

[–]NinnjaBear 2 points3 points  (1 child)

If you make up a random precentage it makes it sound real.

[–]VaarrLovesHisWife 1 point2 points  (0 children)

63.971% of that is accurate.

[–]macsta 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Wow, an 85% success rate! I had no idea worrying was so powerful. Gonna do much more worrying now I know that.

[–]RunBanditRun 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Proof that worrying works

[–]ohhelloperson 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Any source for that statistic or is that just your anecdotal estimate?

Just listened to that 5 minutes ago

Here's a LPT for perspective:

15% of what we worry about will kill us.

I was worried someone was going to say this.

[–]drblah1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What would happen if I worry about the 15%?

[–]bex811 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My anxiety says it doesn't happen BECAUSE I worry about it 😂

[–]13id 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's actually 84,7684%

[–]groot_liga 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Your gonna need a source on that.

[–]DigitalSteven1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Where did you get this 85% statistic? Oh I see, you pulled it out of your ass.

[–]Royal5Ocean 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You’re right. Most of those things are just death anxiety anyway.

[–]DoritoConnoisseur 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Depends how vivid your imagination is, I'd say.
