Why, the mythical "average SCAdian" is a totally subjective medley of all
the SCAdians you know. ;-)

No, that is indeed what I was making a comparison of: a scifi fan that goes
to a convention is more comparable to an 'average" SCAdian who goes to
events in costume, and a scifi fanatic that waits in line in a SW costume
to the movie is more comparable to a SCAdian that, well, waits in garb to
see a medeival movie. ;-)
