“There is a clear trend”

3 Feb

I know this meme has been done to death, but, in my experience, this is how scientists talk:

Especially “There’s science, and then there’s social science.” When it comes down to it, that is about 47% of everything I ever say. The other 53%? “In conclusion, more research is required.” The entire video could have been people repeating “More research is needed,” and I would have laughed.

Which brings me to my second point: You may not have found the above video funny. Sorry about that.
