11. I have a theory about this, actually.
I started a Lounge thread about it. If people couldn't look back on the 1960's and make dumb jokes about pothead hippies, 20% of Americans between the ages of 40 and 70 would experience death within 6 months. The most common causes of death would be hypertension, suicide, and liver failure.

(See: Otherlander's Theory of Hypo-pothead-related-humor Induced Death.)
