  1. Of course the average person (sex undefined) has both one testicle and one ovary, if you accept that there is an equal number of men and women on the earth – between them, they do.

  3. I rushed to my computer when this random factoid popped up in my Psychology text book. It would now appear it was just making a point about how numbers can be presented and how carefully one must look at stats, facts and numbers. Of course those averages are accurate when one considers that the population is comprised of 50% males and 50% females.
