It's probably just that I'm stupid, but I don't understand the anthropic solution to Pascal's Mugging. Why does it matter that other people could have been asked? What if it were stipulated that the mugger threatens everyone?

Maybe I should actually study Kolmogorov complexity before trying to grapple with such matters.
