Jim had gone out drunk driving, had hit a pole, and had become a statistic. Specifically, he had become the statistic that middle class Asian women were 32% less likely to graduate college as their male counterparts. Some months later, Jim was at a coffee shop and he ran into Anna who had become the statistic that the SARS virus outbreak had cost Hong Kong an estimated $3.6 billion dollars. "1 in 5 farm deaths are kids," Jim said to her. "Almost 66% of homes are underinsured," Anna replied. "Over half of the world's population is exposed to one or more major hazards," he told her. Later that night, back at Jim's place, Jim was unable to perform sexually with Anna. There she was, lying naked in front of him, but still, no dice. Its okay, she said, stroking his hair. It happens to a lot of guys. Its normal. I know that! Of course, I know that! Of course he knew that.
