The most common error made by humans is _to die_.
Just think about it: if they didn't die, they'd still be alive.
So many humans have made this error, and yet more make it everyday.
No living human today has, to date, made this fatal error;
yet every single one of them is going to make it someday.
Humans just don't seem to learn from their mistakes!

But we know better, and we at least are not gonna make this mistake.
No, sir, thank you. As said Yossarian:
        "I'm going to live forever, or die trying".
