There is a very thin dividing line between genius and madness. Maybe you're constantly oscillating across the line. In much the same way as the Restaurant at the End of the Universe oscillates across the time-line of the end of the universe!

It is a thin line.
Again, I assure you that what I am talking about is not genius but indeed logic and biology. At least thats what I have been told in biology class. At least I think I was told.
Life is like that guy that rules the Universe in the trilogy.

I think we're doing too many lines in here. My nose is bleeding.

BUT I'M NOT PARANOID! Well maybe I am! That still shouldn't mean the midgets in the pantomime horse suit can sit down yet. I haven't finished my bloodletting. Give me about twenty tournekits and a malt highballer before I squirm up the derby.

Or words to that effect.

IF 75% OF PEOPLE ARE BELOW AVERAGE THEN THE AVERAGE MUST BE LOWER THAN THE AVERAGE - IF YOU SEE WHAT I MEAN

Sorry,but would it be possible to explain how 75% of people are below average?

AVERAGE
the result obtained by adding several amounts together and then dividing the total by the number of amounts.

It's dead easy, lauraocal. Consider the following eight numbers:

1, 1, 3, 1, 1, 7, 1, 1

Add them all together and the result is 16. The average of the eight numbers is 2. Six out of the eight numbers are less than 2, so 75% are below average. Q.E.D.
