I.e. if you start squatting from a young age, and continue this over a lifetime like Mr. Rippetoe would have you do, the chance of an injury happening approaches 100%. It becomes inevitable.
Haha.... I've been squatting for 13yrs and never been really injured from squatting. I better stop walking too... B/c over my lifetime.. I'm going to trip and fall and hurt myself.. it's 100% going to happen.

But does everyone actually squat in a rack when available?

No. Iíve been to enough gyms and seen hundreds of people perform a barbell squat outside of a standard squat rack, or even a smith machine.
How do you squat out of a Smith machine? Besides.. everyone knows you can't squat on a smith rack...
