For a random symmetrical (Gaussian) distribution, the median and the average happen to be the same number.

When the distribution becomes skewed, the average tends towards the tail of the population graph compared to the median.

When it comes to stupid, I’m okay with half the people are below average. (I did see the rule about after midnight. After midnight, functioning IQ of a hundred is pretty rare in most taverns.
