Scribbles

When life gives you lemons, make grape juice and let the world wonder how you did it.

The truth is out O_O

Currently listening to: SNOW EXPRESS – NEWS

Feeling:

 
"It has long been known"
– I didn’t look up the original reference.
 
"A definite trend is evident"
– These data are practically meaningless.
 
"While it has not been possible to provide definite answers to the questions"
– An unsuccessful experiment, but I still hope to get it published.
 
"3 of the samples were chosen for a detailed study"
– The other results didn’t make any sense.
 
"Typical results are shown"
– This is the prettiest graph.
 
"The results will be in a subsequent report"
– I might get around to this sometime if pushed/funded.
 
"In my experience"
– Once.
 
"In case after case"
– Twice.
 
"In a series of cases"
– Thrice.
 
"It is believed that"
– I think.
 
"It is generally believed that"
– A couple of others think so too.
 
"Correct within an order of magnitude"
– Wrong.
 
"According to statistical analysis"
– Rumour has it.
 
"A statistically oriented projection of the significance of these findings"
– A wild guess.
 
"A careful analysis of obtainable data"
– 3 pages of notes were obliterated when I knocked over a glass of beer.
 
"It is clear that much additional work will be required before a complete understanding of this phenomenon occurs"
– I don’t understand it.
 
"After addtional study by my colleages"
– They don’t understand it either.
 
"Thanks are due to Joe Boltz for assistance with the experiment and to Cindy Adams for valuable discussions"
– Mr. Boltz did the work and Ms. Adams explained to me what it meant.
 
"A highly significant area for exploratory study"
– A totally useless topic selected by my committee.
 
"It is hoped that this study will stimulate furthur investigation in this field"
– I quit.
