You reminded me of the survivor fallacy.
A Polish engineer/mathematician was hired by the US air force during WW2. His mission was to make US airplanes stay in the air longer. He was shown a bunch of planes which had returned safely from missions. Some of them had many bullet holes. His commander told him that he thought the best plan was to reinforce the bullet pierced areas with thicker plating.
The engineer objected and suggested instead: The bullet holes indicate that the pierced areas need no additional plating. After all, the planes with bullet holes here returned safely. Look instead into reinforcing areas without bulletholes, as if a plane was downed surely it must've been struck somewhere where these planes were not.
