Wow.

Now I don't feel quite so bad about having faked gravity measurement data in freshman physics lab.

I have just concluded a study that shows 9 out of 10 Farkers will not read the entire article.

There is no good reason to make a 9 page article on the Internet. There is no scroll limit on a webpage. It takes a while to load each page on my phone, so I just gave up on it after page 2.

If you can get to the 5th page, the entire story is summed up with:

The experiment - and others like it - didn't give Stapel the desired results, he said. He had the choice of abandoning the work or redoing the experiment. But he had already spent a lot of time on the research and was convinced his hypothesis was valid.

or, I know I am right, the data is what is wrong.

One afternoon last November, he sat in his kitchen eating a quickly assembled lunch of cheese, bread and chocolate sprinkles

He sounds like a hipster.

Al Gore once released a major "documentary" with 22 major mistakes, and no one called him down on it.

Why bother to do the work if faking pays as well or better?

Exactly.  That's why I only leave the house wearing the finest glue-on nails, extensions, and lashes made.  And my Spanx, and Wonderbra for added realism.

The First Four Katy Perry Albums: Already knew most social science "research" was hokum.


So you observed a single case and made a sweeping generalization to confirm your existing beliefs? What do you think the research community would do if you tried publishing that? Peer review works even when it sometimes takes a while.

I switched from Physics to Maths when I lost marks for reporting what those ridiculous gravity experiments gave, rather than what they were supposed to give.

There was a film in the 80s about a psychologist who was studying con men. Eventually, one of them plunders her savings account and she goes after him with a .38.

Wish I could remember the title.

His lifelong obsession with elegance and order, he said, led him to concoct sexy results that journals found attractive. "It was a quest for aesthetics, for beauty - instead of the truth," he said.

Then he should move to the USA - he'll fit right in.

Thanks!
