And if your measure were to drop off dramatically overnight, it is equivalent 
to saying that many _more people_ woke up in your bed today as compared to the 
number of people who will wake up in your bed tommorrow.

Which is equivalent to saying that, for all practical purposes, you will 
probably die overnight.  And that is the point.
