re: particle physics - A pion is exactly the same as every other pion ever, in the universe, throughout time. No need to worry about what aspects of that pion's previous life experiences might confound a given test, whether that pion was entirely truthful in screening interviews, whether the experimenters (un)intentionally screened the sample of pions to include in the study, whether they could find enough (screened) pions to participate to get statistically significant results, etc etc... cheers

"study results that claimed a "very large effect" rarely held up when other research teams tried to replicate them"

sounds about right. best thing to do is be protective about your data and only release adjusted data which fits your claim.
