Yes I agree. The second law is just a statistical property, is it not?
I believe it is possible to observe cases where the second law does
not hold, even for a long time. But it's extremely unlikely. That
being said, I would argue that it would be nice if we could come to
the conclusion that the quantum suicider experiment can work even
without the need to resort to an highly unlikely stacking of quantum
choices.
