Stupid Science

So I am able to think about things while I sleep. I often wake up with good ideas that I was thinking about as I slept. Last night as I slept I realized I have spent the last three weeks doing data analysis for my dissertation wrong. Curses! I was doing something that was artificially inflating my sample size. I started fixing it today, and it won't take three weeks to re-do, as I learned shortcuts in how to do it, but still. How annoying.

Yikes! What a great catch though! At least you didn't have to deal with the usual pain of thinking too much about stats since you were asleep =)
