Excerpt:

Two Tennessee brothers currently have strategies to fish once more next weekend, despite dangling precariously over a dam for three hours after their boat’s motor passed away Sunday. Greg and Gary Cherry were fishing for bass and perch on their weekly trip when the motor of their Bass Tracker III conked out at the edge of the Barren Fork River Dam in McMinnville, Tenn
. The current began tugging the boat over the edge when Greg Cherry, 47, shoved the motor down to hold the boat in location and called for his brother to rapidly join him in the back of the boat. “Weight transfer is the best thing in that situation,” Greg Cherry told ABCNews.com.
“We locked our arms and I said, ‘We’re in this together,'” Greg Cherry, 47, stated. “I said,’ I love you,’ and [ Gary ] said,’ I love you, too.

Key:

  • Aggregate Sentiment is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s overall sentiment.
  • The Mean is meant to be an indicator of an individual’s average comment sentiment.
  • The Standard Deviation, when there are enough quotes, will indicate an individual’s consistency of sentiment (i.e. a Standard Deviation of 0 would mean they were very consistent in their sentiment and 1 would mean they were very inconsistent).

Note that quote stats are likely to be meaningless beyond the aggregate score due to the tiny sample size. However, they are always provided just in case you find something useful there.
