Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

Dude, seriously?

I mean, come on! We use WAY more than six people when we run surveys. Hell, we usually use more than six people when we do experiments. It's the neurobiologists who are all like, "We did an fMRI study of 14 people- we understand EVERYONE!!!1!!"

Still and all, though, it's a fun comic. Thanks SMBC.

Sadly, many people confuse sociology and journalism. Belkin's famous Times article about the "opt-out revolution" has been enormously influential in sociology (although often as a foil), and it's based entirely on "interviews" of six friends from her Princeton graduating class.

We also managed to give a sociology award to David Brooks, despite the fact that he gets sociology wrong at least 80% of the time.
