If you have ever bumped into a friend in Outer Mongolia and tried to explain this to yourself using the laws of probability, and then on the way back passed a friend of a friend riding the other way on a Yak, you will end up mentally dumping everything you ever knew about averages and probability. Panic not, read Mark Buchanan's book, 'Small World' and your confidence in a scientific, predictable, orderly world will be restored.
