Private funding, federal funding, I really don’t care which it is. Privates are what I was referring to (thanks Sharpshooter308), but take a look at some of the studies that get federal funding–and not just from the American gummint. Things like studies to find out what days people are happiest on (gee, could it be WEEKENDS!? By jove, it is! And I knew that without any multi-million dollar study; yes, that was a REAL federally-funded study). It’s ridiculous what gets federal grants “in the name of research.” We need to find the people responsible for approving such frivolous studies; they’d make excellent lab monkeys for a study on why people can be so clueless.
