I don't actually know the figures behind that. Do more people really own Tauruses?

I think SOA members are more secure given they don't start threads like this once a week.
sounds like what someone from the SOA would say.

Invalid analogy.

People don't generally have a "choice" between Ford and Lamborghini. It's not a decision they actually make.

It's like me saying that more people are teachers than actuaries, therefore being a teacher is better.

A more correct analogy would be "more people are elementary teachers than special ed teachers, but does that mean elementary teachers are better?" And, yes, it does.
