My original title was ‘a twitter on unreliable research’, but as I don’t twitter, and never will, I changed it, but my first inclination shows the meme-like qualities of this invasive medium. Enough said. Too much actually. The point of the pointer is to attend you to a very readable low threshold article in the Economist about trouble at the lab (Scientists like to think of science as self-correcting. To an alarming degree, it is not)
So? Well, that’s all…go read it yourself. For the rest: unreliable really bothers me, unlikely is fun, never deny good storytelling its credit.
