    Yeah it is, the "average" is just an mathematical abstraction. There might be what, 1 in a million that is deadon average.

    But roughly 50% of people are below average and 50% are above average.

    "Normal" people are +/ 1 sd from avg

    A classic example of most people being above average is the number of fingers. The average number of fingers (thumb is counted as a finger) is less than 10 because there are more people who have lost a finger than had an extra one due to a mutation. Obviously, though the vast majority of people have 10 fingers.

    And a classic example of most people being below average is the number of sexual partners. The average number of sexual partners is derived from billions of uglies and incompetents, millions of total Betas and hundreds of thousand of Duracell bunnies when it comes to sex that Charles Darwin, the father of evolution would be proud.

    It's OK, 50% of people are below average anyway.
    Not strictly true.. If A, B, C, D, E all got 80% then they would all be average and noone would be below average :fyi:
    Unlikely, I know.. but possible :cute:

    I'm hoping this is some sort of joke, 'mean' and average
    This thread must be a joke

    This is the same person who said yesterday that they are leaving TSR and they got disowned by their parents for firming a post 92 uni :rolleyes:
