Stop Studying the Incredibly Obvious

September 5, 2007

In the last 48 hours, three studies have come out that make me sit up and wonder “Who gives grants for these studies?”

Study #1: Shows that men prefer…(gasp) good looking women!

Study #2: Shows that lack of sleep may hurt your libido.

Study #3: Rock stars are more likely to die younger than the general population.

Look at all three of these studies: They fall into the category of the mind-numbingly obvious. I guarantee you that some Sociology majors made a fortune designing and implementing these research grants.

Here are a few I propose for the 2008 Sociology degree graduates:

1. Does watching too much television lower your IQ?
2. Do people have more stress when they have more debt?
3. Do people who know God report more peace in their lives?
4. Do most people look up and see blue sky? (Do this study in Sacramento, not Seattle btw).
