    This is an ordinary, average thread
    With average posts, read by average heads
    We all congregate here every day
    Some folks post pictures, some just say "Hey"

    Just an ordinary, average thread...

    You know, I was wondering where have all the average people gone...

    At least now I know where to look.

    E(X) = μ= Σi xi pi i = 1, 2, …, n

    E(X) = x1p1 + x2p2 + … + xnpn.

    This is an average thread.

    Stay on your side of the median, and try not to say anything mean.

    Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, stuck in the middle with you...

    Lately I've enjoyed average boring days, I could use a few more of them right now.

    In the past week I've had some bad stuff happen (couple of deaths, house fire) to my fairly close circle of family and friends. So I'd prefer average over that.

    Cheers,
    Doug

    (edit: deleted erroneous quote)

    Keep your mode of transport on your side of the median, or I'm gonna get mean.

    (I'm just trying to help ;))

    Average doesn’t tell you much. What’s the standard deviation?

    One of my favorite scenes in one of my favorite films (Local Hero) is when Mac goes to the chemist (drug store) to buy shampoo. Mac (Peter Riegert) is somewhat self-conscious and a "fish out of water" in the Scottish fishing village, so when the clerk asks, "Dry, normal, or greasy?" Mac hesitates, then answers, "Normal.........extra normal"

    Every now and then, I meet persons that make me understand how the "average IQ" is 100.
