The so called law of averages has something to say about the mitigating effect of more data.For example, keep flipping a coin long enough and eventually you approach 50% heads and 50% tails.
Id imagine this law could be put to use by women in denial of of anything that indicates there are sins that tend to be associated with each gender. These women would prefer to keep flipping the coin until the sins were evenly distributed across the two genders and they could say, “men do it too-ooo”. Or would they? That may be too much woman sinnin’.
Empath is here to help.
Being a math nerd and observer of things that could be the beginning of the unraveling of the fabric of the universe, I have noted:
1. In the U.S. the electrical cords have to be plugged in a certain way. if you flip them around they wont fit. One side is larger. So, over many years I have noticed not that the number of times I am correct in cord placement verses the times I am wrong should approach 50/50. But I boldly claim that, even if it shakes the laws Newton observed, even if the apple doesn’t fall down but travels up, I am wrong in my cord placement at least 70% of the time.
2. Similarly, brooms are cut at an angle for sweeping. To lean them into a corner or nook one must put the shorter bristles nearer the wall. Over a lifetime of sweeping, my brooms have fallen out of the corner more often than not. 50% is a distant goal.
I shared these observations with a man who was teaching a six sigma class. He looked down, over his half moon readers perched on his nose and said, impossible. You are mistaken.
I’m thinking these two facts are relevant to the mathematically outlandish and dismissive claims women make. After all, if I can defeat the law of averages with zero effort, why can men and women not be the same except when they are different in a way that makes men look worse?
Don’t be frightened. The orbit and poles of the earth are stable at bedtime.
