The Straight Dope: Thank you for dying: Did 250 million people in the industrialized world die from smoking over 10 years?
  • As Cecil points out, the number is absurd. The total number of deaths in the industrialized world, from all causes, was between 110 million and 125 million deaths in the ten year period 1995-2004. In other words, according to Christopher Buckley's statistic, smoking causes 200% of all deaths!
  • The real number is about two million smoking-related deaths per year, about one in every six deaths in the industrialized world. Of course, all of those people would have died anyway, sooner or later, so from a statistical standpoint, smoking does not cause more people to die, but causes them to die SOONER. The meaningful statistic is the amount of life lost per smoker, and the best available answer seems to be 15 years.

This week's movies - update: Silent Hill - 33% positive reviews.
  • The critics generally agree. If they were eveluating the look of the film, it would have close to 100% positives. If they were evaluating the script and acting, it would be close to zero percent positive. The only difference from critic to critic in determining the overall rating is the weight they assign to those elements. Think of a Ewe Boll film with cinematography by Caleb Deschanel.

This week's movies, update: American Dreamz - 43% positive reviews
  • This is the lampoon of President Bush and American Idol. I haven't seen it, but to tell you the truth, the negative reviews seem to have consistently ignored what the movie actually did and whined about how they wanted it to be angrier, not so safe and good-natured, not so affectionate and generous, less of a sitcom and more of a harangue.
  • In other words, if you prefer laughs to anger, you may like it better than the approval numbers might indicate. Ebert and Gleiberman both praised it, while acknowledging that it's more of a screwball sitcom than an angry satire.

This week's movies - update: The Sentinel -35% positive reviews. This is the Secret Service mystery with Michael Douglas, Kiefer Sutherland, Kim Basinger and Eva Longoria.
  • Some critics were not very kind: "It's obvious that nobody believed in this project longer than it took for the check to clear."
  • "The Sentinel could easily pass for a generic straight-to-DVD release if it wasn't for the presence of Michael Douglas."
