- There is one empty seat on each bus. Take your pick.
- Each bus will pick up five people today. Five riders will have to give up their seats to make room for the new riders and will be taken off the bus by the Grim Reaper.
One bus has 15 seats.
The other bus has 65 seats.
Which bus would you pick?
The smaller bus is a much bigger threat, eh? Who would ever pick it unless you were anxious to get kicked off to meet the Grim Reaper?
This demonstrates the myth that smaller disease prevalence (the size of the bus) means smaller disease impact.
ALS is the Grim Reaper Express Microbus. It's a lot worse than a big bus.
