Try “several”

Often, there is a probability that something will happen.  If you are describing said likelihood, chances are you, in your corporate spokesman verbiage, will say “there are a number of reasons why…”

Guess what?  Zero is a number.  So when you say “there are a number of reasons why I’m not an idiot,” you are actually opening the door to me concluding that you are, in fact, an idiot.
