The metaphor for the theme of the entertaining book, “The Flaw of Averages,” by Sam Savage, is a drunk attempting to cross a dangerous highway. The state of the drunk at his average position (i.e. the center line) is alive. However the average state of the drunk, wherever he is on the road at a given point of measurement, is dead! The dead drunk embodies Savage's Strong Form of the Flaw of Averages.
