from The Century Dictionary.
- Having the form of a circle.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Actually the circly thing is the standard deviation (variance would be squared) and the more standard deviations you get from the mean, the less likely it is that the something will happen.
To be sure, please use a font that actually has the dotted circly glyph.
And those who pushed moral relativism in this kids circly, should be stripped and flogged.
