My name says it all..........
Are you average,
It depends on who or what you're comparing me with.
the origin of the word averagecomes from the mediterranean
shipping trade of the 15th century,
referring to financial losses due
to damage incurred during transit
two tracks of descent compete:
one suggests it is from Arabic
arwariya: damaged merchandise
the other thought is that Arabic
borrows from the Franks (west
german tribal confederation of the
3rd cent CE)
OED, my fave dictionary, contends
that It. avere (O.Fr avier):
goods, property~~ from L. habere:to have
meaning shifted to "equal sharing of such loss by the interested parties."
transferred sense of "statement of a medial estimate" is first recorded 1735.
adjective is first recorded 1770; the verb is from 1769.
the mathematical extension is from 1755.
some days, i definitely feel like a statement of a medial estimate
No, I am BTS.
QL- LOL...that might be a sight to see..
Average IQ is 100. I weigh more than that, so I'm good.
