Half of people are below average intelligence.

*shakes head* Median. Half of people are below median intelligence.

*shakes head a bit more* Average. Half of the people are below average intelligence. Due to the law of large numbers and the construction that intelligence has finite variance, intelligence is normally distributed. Therefore the statement holds for the three most used averages: Mode, Median and (arithmetic) Mean.

Given how many people are at average intelligence, 'less than average' is less than half, and 'less than or equal to average' is more than half.

Should have bought lottery tickets with that kickstarter money instead. It's no revolution when a single company controls everything, they wanted to be steam for android, that's all. But there's hope yet, a revolution is possible. We all have, in our pockets, an android device more capable than the Ouya. We all plan to upgrade said device regularly. It has internet access. It can project its screen on the TV. All we need is a good cheap bluetooth controller.

People who want to use mod points to win an argument will create two (or more) accounts. Comment from an account that doesn't have mod points, then mod themselves up from a different account. The rule accomplishes probably nothing.
