Re: Telly Thread Reply #660 – May 18, 2019, 12:15:32 am When people attribute suicides to things like this, they need to show that the the suicide.. tragic as it is.. is not a statistical inevitability. So does going on Jeremy Kyle increase the risk? Maybe it lessens it?It’s like the occasional furore about suicides of Chinese people who assemble iPhones. We get told that X suicides of iPhone assemblers is terrible (which it is, of course) but not that the rate of suicide amongst iPhone assemblers is materially lower than amongst comparable non-iPhone assemblers.I’m not defending the show. But I feel uneasy about pinning deaths on it without seeing some honest workings.
