I'm glad you said normal and not average.

The average resident of any sizable country has one uterus and one testicle, yet exceedingly rare is the person with that exact combination smiley - bigeyes.

So how do we get an average of one uterus?

The way I heard that factoid was that the average person has one testicle and one breast.

Of course, you have to take into account those that actually have one or fewer which brings that average down just a bit below one per person, as there are so few triple breasted or testicled people walking around to bring the average back up to one.


Testicled is a word, right?

If that is an average - just how many are walking around with more than one of each?

I believe half of the citizens are walking around with either two testicles or two ovaries - on average

The principle of handling one's statistics in whole stoiochiometric sets is one that many people have never heard of and many can't grasp.

Its similar to the quantum principle: no fractional quanta allowed.

Approximate quantum theory hasn't caught on? Why not?

Nothing hard to understand about the principle.

Split a uranium atom, for example, its not a uranium atom anymore.

Instead the remnants are several other things.

smiley - offtopic

Meanwhile, taking it from post 16, I have noticed, till recently, smileys often don't immediately post, instead, the alphabetical portion of the smiley comes up temporarily highlighted in blue, like a hyperlink, before converting over to the appropriate emoticon image.

Its been a while since I've seen that though.
