Here's a quote from an article in the Toronto Globe and Mail:
"People who take long-acting opioids for chronic pain are much more likely to die than those taking other medications, according to a study published ..."
And here I thought we all have a 100% probability of dying.
FARTHER OR FURTHER?
One thing that throws a lot of us is when to use farther and when to us further. It turns out that there's a difference between the US and the UK in this regard, according to grammarist.com:
"Farther and further both mean at a greater distance, and they are used interchangeably in this sense. In the United States, though, farther is more often used to refer to physical distances, and further more often refers to figurative and nonphysical distances. For example, we might say that one mountain is farther away than another, while we might say the price of a stock (a nonphysical thing) fell further today than yesterday. This is not a rule, however, and further is often used for physical distances. The distinction does not exist in the U.K. and elsewhere in the (British) Commonwealth of Nations, where further is preferred for all senses of the word and farther is rare.
Further has senses it does not share with farther. It works as an adjective meaning additional—e.g., “I have no further questions.” It works as an adverb meaning additionally—e.g., “He said he did not spend the money, and stated further that he had never even received it.” And it works as a verb meaning to advance (something)—e.g., “This website is meant to further understanding of 21st-century English.” Farther is not commonly used these ways."
