A phrase used in an attempt to modify sweeping generalization into inductive argument by reducing the circumstances under which the generality might be considered false, given the semantics of averaging.
On average, goods that cost more energy to produce are better than goods that cost less energy to produce. You know, like a steak versus a salad. Or a Rolex versus a Timex. They're just better - I'm just saying - on average.

A person typically between the ages of 15-30, of middle to upper middle economic class, whose values, interests, sense of humor, and outward appearance relentlessly conform to their immediate culture's norms of popularity. An averager's interests will change only to the extent that the most common fads and fashions within their age group change, and features of themselves that don't match these widespread norms are hidden away publically and forcibly repressed psychologically.

Preferences and ideas that are not abundantly average/popular are immediately and outwardly valued as inferior, amazingly without any application of rational thought on the averager's part. Critical thinking skills are notoriously lacking, but if the image of being a "critical thinker" is popular, they will pay lip service to their critical thinking skills to their peers.

The primary goal of an averager is to look, act, and think exactly like the centralized average group of people within their basic age group while demonizing and putting down non-averagers.

"Ugh! Let's leave. This bar couldn't have more averagers."

"Don't join that frat! Look who's in it! It's just one averager after another."

Though often thought to mean mundane and boring, Average really means what occurs the most.

"My Life Is Average" is a site were "Average" means "crazy awesome" to the mundane boring person.

If you make your life crazy awesome by doing random things, not only will you be happier, but you will redefine average in your life.
"Today, I was walking home from school when suddenly, two guys ran by me. They stopped at the crosswalk ahead, pulled out lightsabers, and dueled until the walk sign went green. MLIA."

In an attempt to be un-average, Sara wore a snuggie to school. Soon this became a trend, and every average person wore a snuggie.
