I will not sleep well untill I get an answear to the question: Why would
anyone in the biology world want to find an average, normal or common
cell. Only statisticans shuld care about averages. In biology it is
almost a sensation if you find a species that fits any averages. IF YOU
REALLY WANT A PICTURE OF AN AVERAGE CELL, DO AS STATISTICANS DO: USE THE
AVERAGE FORMULA, FIGURE OUT HOW THAT APPLY TO CELLS AND MAKE A DRAWING.
