Remember SurveyFail?

You can submit questions for the people behind all that on the Freakonomics blog.

Have fun. :)

I missed SurveyFail, but as you know, linked to the awesome mocking Amazon tags for the resulting book.

Why does it not surprise me that the Freakonomics people actually back these idiots?

Here are my questions, asked under my shit-stirring pseudonym:

How do you say things like “the largest experiment ever” with a straight face when all you did was “analyze” millions of pieces of media on whatever shallow, facile level you were able to analyze them?

How can you manage to show your face on the internet after your last “experiment”?

Has your methodology improved from your last “experiment”, where you gathered no data about neuroscience at all but took your preconceived notions of how men and women were wired sexually, made assumptions about what was happening in their brains when they engaged with certain materials, and called the results “science”? It doesn’t seem like it, since it’s not like you have any brain scans to go with the media you “analyzed”.

What exactly did you do besides look at a lot of internet porn that other people had looked at and then figure out how to stretch it to fit your preconceived models?

What institution or institutions are you falsely claiming affiliation with this time?

How do you manage to call yourself a scientist without the very laws of causality coming to life as an indignant anthropomorphic force and kicking you squarely in the nuts?


We'll see if it gets through moderation.

I am saving this for future reference.

I am basing my thesis on it. It's the same as research.
