There's Probably a Catch

Sometimes life is so surprising. And sometimes it's us and has little to do with anything we might ever think of as life.

Here's a loaded question that was the online survey question in my hometown newspaper, The Bulletin, this past Sunday. Maybe you can see the trick in the question; I didn't and still don't but judging from the percentages of the answers, there must be something I'm missing.

Here goes: TAKE OUR POLL
Would you be willing to quit smoking, cut back on drinking, maintain a healthy weight and get at least 150 minutes of exercise each week in order to reduce your chances of getting cancer?

Need more time to answer? No? You're sure? Well, if you guessed 100% of those who took the on-line survey answered yes, you are wrong.
Serious, here it is:

Yes
73%

No
27%

I guess it's true.
