comment How do people estimate smoking's impact on their mortality?
Thanks for making the edits; I think the focus on smoking makes it a much more answerable question.

Would you be able to edit your question incorporating these suggestions?

comment How do people estimate smoking's impact on their mortality?
Yes. Good questions. There is literature on all these topics. You are talking about the field of health psychology. I think your question would be better divided into at least two separate questions. I.e., (1) How accurate are people in estimating their mortality risk? and then a second question about smoking. I'm not quite clear on what is your second question, but it could be: (2a) How does smoking alter people's perceptions of mortality risk? or (2b) How effective is new information in altering smoker's perception of mortality risk? Your third question seems a little too general.

comment This is the 2,000th question posted. Why do people care about big round number events more than the surrounding events?
Could you clarify: (1) easier in what sense? (2) Saves a lot of what? (3) Why is simplicity of representation appealing?
