I've been running the numbers on John McCain's death. It's interesting to say the least.
For example three million Americans die every year. Of those, only 17 thousand die of brain cancer, or one in 176.
But McCain also died on the same day of the year as his friend and fellow Senator Ted Kennedy. Since they died on the SAME day, that's a 1 in 365 x 365 chance, or 133,000.
Multiply 133K by 176 and you get an astonishing one in 23 and a half million.
Those are the odds of McCain "just happening" to die on the same day as TK of the same rare disease..
Because glioblastoma is an EXTREMELY RARE form of brain cancer, it accounts for only 15 in 100 brain cancers, or about one in 6.
So we multiply 23 and a half million by SIX, and get an amazingly astronomical one in A HUNDRED AND 38 MILLION.
Or he was given the choice to commit suicide and spare his family the embarrassing facts. Your call
