Gave this a quick search, nothing too thorough. Sorry if it's been done before, but here we are.

Anyone reading this with two legs is above the mean average in the leg department. It sounds weird, but someone explained it to me the other day and I was probably more fascinated than I should've been.

Say we get everyone in the world together. A few of these people are going to be missing one or two legs. Even if just one person's missing a leg, the average is lowered to below 2 legs a person. Therefore, anyone with two legs is above average in the leg department.

But they'll still have the modal number of legs, so who cares?

Wrong. 1 person out of almost 7 billion is not enough to lower the world average.

Without rounding up, the world average drops to below two.

Yes it is. (6+6+6+6+6+6+6+5)/8 = <6

And there's definitely more than 1 person missing a leg or two on the entire planet

Surely the average number would be 5 point something, given all the insects everywhere?

Or 0 point something, given the number of things that aren't animals and don't have any legs?

Or the sum of all the legs in the universe, seeing as there's only one number of legs and it's that?

Which begs the question, where do we draw the line as to what's a leg and what isn't? What if an alien species has a thing that's a bit like a leg, but not quite?

Dos Piernes. Done. Really, statistics are stupid anyway. (At least when talking about legs)

We found a flaw in your logic, TS.


Quote by ChucklesMginty
The average person also has 1 testicle.

So averages tell us that most people have 1 leg, one breast and one testicle. This is why I sometimes get sceptical about statistics.


The average person also has less than one penis.

How can anyone have anything other than a whole number of legs?

Unless there were truly that many one or no-legged people on the planet to drag the average below one, this doesn't really work.

I suppose some people have a leg that is cut off/gone from say the knee, which could be seen as half a leg

This, a mean is not always the best way to measure average, especially in cases like this.

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

#28
well yeah, more people lose a leg than are born with three, so the average is slightly less than two.

This joke was in Treasure Island. not sure which version, but i distinctly remember long john silver mentioning something about someone having 'more than the average number of legs'.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.

It's about statistics... and being who you are, you probably know that very well and you were just trolling but I don't care, because I needed someone to make comments at so thank you!

"It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination."

This quote (from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series) shows the flaw in your logic TS. You can either take it as a fun way of showing why 'average' statistics should not be trusted, or as proof for humanity not existing and the point being moot.
