Big Picture Science

Poi­so­nous snakes, light­ning strikes, a rogue rock from space. There are plen­ty of scary things to fret about, but are we burn­ing adren­a­line on the right ones? Step­ping into the bath­tub is more dan­ger­ous than fly­ing from a sta­tis­ti­cal point of view, but no one signs up for fear of show­er­ing” classes. 

Find out why we get tripped up by sta­tis­tics, wor­ry about the wrong things, and how the intel­li­gence trap” not only leads smart peo­ple to make dumb mis­takes but actu­al­ly caus­es them to make more.
