> The average /. reader is an idiot.

This is possible, most are yanks, I guess :-)

> Half of /. readers are below average.

This does not follow, try this sample of IQs
80 105,105,105,106,107,108,109,110,110,110
Average is 104.5, only 10% of the sample is

I have also heard that 80% of guys think they are above average at sport, which is also possible.
