>> its simple statistics that six is better than the one (In that you have 6 chances for excellence instead of 1).<<
Actually, studies have shown that in any walk of life only 5% of people excel and pioneer in their chosen fields. The rest are, at best, only good. But more likely to be simply average. Average being an acceptable term. The correct term is mediocre
So your assertion is flawed. It's more likely that you have six chances of buffonery against one chance of excellence.
"Beware the average man. Everything he does will be average." - Charles Bukowski.
"u.v.ray is an uncompromising writer who glares at the world with bloodshot eyes. He gazes into the abyss and sees jewels of tragedy, comedy, cruelty, heroism, tenderness, darkness, grit and futility. We Are Glass is a searing collection of seventeen razor-sharp short stories; a very fine collection indeed." -- Paul D. Brazill. www.uvray.moonfruit.com
