When scientists are on Facebook…

Me: I am trying to write a report with the worst data ever!

JEByrnes: Wow. Lofty claim. Is it reported in cubits, or something? Because, you know, that would… actually be kinda awesome. Although even cooler if the data was in fractional fathoms. Or hands. I totally want to arcsin sqrt transform a hand.

Me: Oooh, cubits! Maybe…metric cubits? With decicubits? Also, I read that as arcsin SQUIRT! a hand. My data is like unto the evil of the Old Ones, reported in subjective grading by four different people. And also, all the critters died.

JEByrnes: Ew! Well…there’s always multilevel modeling with the relationship varying by observer. But critter death? Ain’t nothing statistics can do for them! An ANOVA will not resuscitate a sea star that has gone to the great mussel bed in the sky. If only…

Nurse! Our patient is crashing! Get the emergency Markov Chain Monte Carlo Sampler!

Doctor, do you think that’s wise?

  7. If you feel any of these problems, you must understand that there is black mold somewhere in your house and you need to locate and remove it.
    Household products such as vegetable oil and castile soap can be combined with vinegar to clean wood decks naturally as well.

    Leaks in your roof or around windows, plumbing problems and
    even cracks and crevices in the walls allow moisture to
    seep into your home’s structure.
