The Last Word (almost)

Almost-Everyone

There are always "outliers" or "misfits" (those people that don't quite "fit in"). But almost everyone is an oddball at not just a few things but many things. The favorite sport of most people is different than your favorite sport. Most people don't wear your shoe size. And whatever the consideration, almost everyone is NOT included most of the time. Perhaps that's why the Bell curve exists, so that everyone can fit in somewhere. Still, "almost-everyone" is a state of mind, and we can find common ground there.


Types/Categories:

1. A majority: Over fifty percent of the population.

1. A supermajority: Sixty percent, or two-thirds, or all but the one exception in the game Musical Chairs, or when drawing straws.
