I'm so glad someone recognizes these absurd studies! lol I always ask myself "Why do we really need to know these things and who in the heck decided it was worth grant money to study it in the first place???"

They needed another category for the oh so wise people that OKed and financed these, and so many other, equally important studies.

I was in the Belly of the Beast with these clowns trying to get funding for nonsense studies. These people are con artists with degrees. I threw my hands up in frustration with these people. I'm using the word 'people ' very generously.
