In some of the other "what should I do?" threads, statistics, percentages, odds, and studies were tossed out there to advocate one course of action over another.

Example (paraphrased): 83% of the time, complying with an armed robber results in no injury. Therefore, you should comply. The odds/percentages say you should.

Where is that same reasoning in this thread? The vast majority of "noises" turn out to be nothing at all, so where is the argument that you should just go check it out? Afterall, the odds/percentages say that you're probably going to find nothing.

Or do the statistics only work the other way around?
