  1. Everyone is their “own” average. When compared to others it gets personal. OWS believe the are the majority (median data point? I don’t think so). Politicians talk about moving to the “center” after primaries. Is that average? Is there such a thing as momentum? Can a sports team, company or individual benefit from momentum making them above average? In the short term maybe, Flip a coin 100 times. You can get heads 12 consecutive times. Are you above average? In the end the range is 50%. In the end we’re dead.

    You’re way above average since that assessment – you must be on a streak of head flips. We aren’t alive for 100 coin tosses. Keep it going.
