Jokes of averaging.
#1. Average face of group of laughing and crying people is the same as average
face of calm people. But who produces more noise?
Average of non-linear function is not equal to non-linear function of average.
Biomedical interpretation. Example.
Mortality in two groups with equal average age can be different. Group #1
(40-50 years) and group #2 (20-70 years) have the same average age 45 years.
But mortality is a non-linear function of age...
Have you ever seen clinical trials or experimental studies that tested balance
using anything but average values?
