The weight grouping choice favored by fat girls at online dating sites. If she chooses "a few extra pounds", bring a harpoon and/or tranq rifle. Same with "ghetto booty". Holy hell. U.D. has been up this long and nobody submitted a definition for "average"? Urban Dictionary

Formally, "average" refers to one of two measures of a data set: The data set's mean: sum all the items in the data set and divide by the number of items summed. If three children have heights of 2 feet, 3 feet, and 5 feet, then their mean height is 3 and 1/3 feet. Imagine an extra-long yardstick. Now let's say we hang bowling balls of equal weight from the yardstick at the 2-foot mark, the 3-foot mark, and the 5-foot mark. Assuming the bowling balls don't all slide off, the yardstick should balance if it's held near the 3 and 1/3 foot mark. This is a general observation about the mean that might be helpful if you're wondering what to think of it. The data set's median, or its middle item. If three children have heights of 2 feet, 3 feet, and 5 feet, then their median height is 3 feet. Statisticians disagree on how the median is defined with respect to a data set with an even number of elements. It's really quite unfortunate the way "average" has come to mean two things. I strongly recommend the use of "mean" or "median" if you know what the fuck you're talking about. Informally, the word "average" is even more misused. I can accept sentences like "The average adult watches 4.5 hours of television a day," even though they're technically incorrect--a little rhetorical flourish is fine. But the commonly accepted meaning of "average" is certainly **not** "just under par", as some Urban Dictionary users seem to use it. Urban Dictionary

Adj Term used in solemn, resigned existential angst by a man or woman to describe something that was so horrible and painful that they couldn't possibly stand to relive it. Urban Dictionary

Rick Urban Dictionary

1. adj. to describe anything that while it functions to its minimal specification, it still sucks 2. adj. bad 3. n. one who is not good Urban Dictionary

A person typically between the ages of 15-30, of middle to upper middle economic class, whose values, interests, sense of humor, and outward appearance relentlessly conform to their immediate culture's norms of popularity. An averager's interests will change only to the extent that the most common fads and fashions within their age group change, and features of themselves that don't match these widespread norms are hidden away publically and forcibly repressed psychologically. Preferences and ideas that are not abundantly average/popular are immediately and outwardly valued as inferior, amazingly without any application of rational thought on the averager's part. Critical thinking skills are notoriously lacking, but if the image of being a "critical thinker" is popular, they will pay lip service to their critical thinking skills to their peers. The primary goal of an averager is to look, act, and think exactly like the centralized average group of people within their basic age group while demonizing and putting down non-averagers. Urban Dictionary

An average person is someone who Loves Harry Potter, hates Twilight, perfers google to yahoo, and enjoys playing with their socks during church! Urban Dictionary
