    • Is this one true? Half are below median, certainly, but average depends on the distribution. More than half are below average if there are more outliers on the high end than the low end.

      • An interesting question, Nate – it’ll depend on the measuring instrument, so I’d bet that if you design the right test, you could actually make the claim, “More than half of America’s children are ABOVE average!”

        In any case, mareserinitatis, I like that one a lot. 🙂
