Of course, I realized this already, since I am not at all incompetent.

Fundamental attribution error hard at work.

I know what I know, know what I don’t know, and don’t know what I don’t know.

As for my number, I’m pretty sure I can use the z-table instead of the t-table, provided I am willing to assume no sampling bias.

A famous George Carlin quote:

Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. George Carlin

.

Of course, that would technically be the median person, rather than the mean person (both of which are legitimate meanings for average, BTW.

You want a quote?  Haven’t I written enough already???
