Scientist on the roof asks for advice on dealing with a breast lump.  Update

If you’re interested in what’s going on with economics research, the NBER Summer Institute is putting up its lectures on youtube for two weeks after each conference, which means right now you can get about everything (but on Monday things will start disappearing).  Here’s a link to the entire schedule of talks (click on a date on the calendar or one of the names in boxes and press submit).

    Scientist on the Roof reports that it was just a cyst. Maybe update so people can suggest ways to celebrate?

    My favorite podcast just did a whole episode on the guy from the bottomless soup study. It turns out he also published a bunch of other bs studies that made their way into our ideas about food

    The Vox article says “in a statement to Vox, Wansink refuted these findings.”

    Bzzt! Wrong! The word is “rebut” unless you think they totally succeeded in disproving something.

      Nah, “disputed.” He didn’t offer a rebuttal (much less a refutation). Just made a statement that sums up as “Did not!”

      • Matthew D Healy Says:

        You’re right. And his “did not” statement was about as convincing as that of a small child caught with hands in the cookie jar.

    Go, Quinta, keeping it real! That interviewer had decided his story and wasn’t going to let any facts change that.
