    no. below median would be correct if anything.

    * On normal distributed chractteristics: If you know one guy being about 2 m high and other wise a lot of people say about 1,70 to 1,80 the average would be slightly higher than the median...

    * ON characterstics not normally distributed: If you know a lot of persons who make around 50.000/year and a handful with no income, and some with very high income the efect can be even more pronounced.

    That's what I started out trying to say, but he said it much better than I could.

    Half of a loaf is better than no bread. Is it really?

    End slices may be a bit crusty.

    It depends on if you are speaking about 'half a loaf of bread' or something else.
