Situation: In ECE 361, waiting to get our test back.

Prof. Gokhan : The average was an 82.
Me : I'm hoping my grade isn't below the average.
Andy : I'm hoping my grade isn't below the standard deviation.
Tests are handed back
Andy : * Sees his grade * Argh! What the [heck]?!
Me : It's like your grade is playing football, and that 82 is blocking you...but you blitz, and you're at the 30, the 20, the 10...
Andy : Touchdown!
