He says it again, but more vividly.

We’ve discussed Clarke’s third law (“Any sufficiently crappy research is indistinguishable from fraud”) and that, to do good science, honesty and transparency are not enough.

James Heathers says it again, vividly.

I don’t know if Heathers has ever written anything about the notorious study in which participants were invited to stick 51 pins into a voodoo doll representing their spouses—no, I’m not kidding about this one, it was just done by some bigshot professor who calls himself a “myth buster,” has over 199 peer-reviewed articles (he said “over 200” but it turned out that at least one was copied), and has testified before Congress, so no big deal. That voodoo study is hilarious, worth a good rant or two if Heathers has it in him. . . .
