An above average post.

Abigail points out on her blog that 39% of Americans think they're in the top 1% wealth-wise—or will be someday. This reminds me of a couple of similar statements I've heard:
  • Most people believe they are above average drivers.
  • You can't convince 80% of parents that their children aren't above average.
I've been believing these things with no evidence for years. You may find them more palatable with sodium chloride.
