alone on a swing

My universe is shaped like a curve.

Statistics tutoring today went well. Also, did you know that the average adult American spent about 5 hours per week on the computer. I'm like, that's it? I can easily spend twice that much on my computer per week! With a standard deviation of 1, given a normal distribution, I'm over the mean by 5 sigmas!!! That's virtually impossible and would imply that I'm an outlier, but I know lots of people who are the same. Of course, I also know people who've never used a computer in their life. This leads me to think the numbers are wrong. "Lies, damn lies, and statistics" indeed!
