“The mortality rate for young men in society is six times what it is for young women,
from violence and from accidents, just the stupid stuff that young men do; jumping off of things
they shouldn’t jump off of, lighting things on fire they shouldn’t light on fire, I mean,
you know what I’m talking about. They die at 6 times the rate that young women do.
Statistically, as a teenage boy, you would be safer in the fire department or the
police department in most American cities, than just walking around
in your hometown looking for something to do.”
