Yet another ridiculous "statistical" link!

"Car crash risk rises on election days, study says. Death risk goes up 18 percent but that's no reason to skip polls, authors say."

Give me a flippin break!

""This is one of the most off-the-wall things I've ever read, but the science is good," said Roy Lucke, senior scientist at Northwestern University's Center for Public Safety. He was not involved in the study, which appears in Wednesday's Journal of the American Medical Association."

Apparently, we're not having any potential or actual crises these days. Apparently, "scientists" need to find other ways to fill their time. Apparently, "science" magazines are deperately looking for any material so that they can publish it.

Two things need to happen, people:
1. Stop funding these ridiculous "studies." That money could be better spent somewhere else.
2. Scientists and researchers need to find better tings to do with their time and money and resources.

Then again, the researchers in this study were Canadian, and it's not Hockey season yet, so that might explain a thing or two!
