1 xkcd on significance

Today's xkcd made me laugh - read the mouseover text for maximum humorous effect...

Significance

I don't like it when findings get sensationalized or read out of context - or jumping to conclusions about them. Is coffee good for you... or bad for you? Is that glass of wine with dinner good for you? How about two glasses?

This is why more than one study is needed when something of significance appears - and why the studies need more evaluation.

  1. The "xkcd on significance" cartoon was hilarious. And just think of all the funding money that went into that! LOL
