The threatd by FKCGG with the homage to the Twilight Zone title got me thinking.  Averages ... and how they can lead to false conclusions.  https://www.thestar.com/news/insight/2016/01/16/when-us-air-force-discovered-the-flaw-of-averages.html

Reminds me of the story of what happened when the three mathematicians who went deer hunting and saw their buck. 

 

The first one took his shot. It went into a tree, about a foot high and three feet off to the left. 
 

The second one lined up and put his shot a foot low, two and a half feet off to the right. 
 

Third one laid his gun down, took out his skinning knife, yelled, “We got him!”
