When Evidence Says No, but Doctors Say Yes - The Atlantic
Wonderful to see the "A decade of reversals" paper find an audience outside of academia. Also love the term "bio-plausible" to explain how stupid procedures survive simply because it seems obvious that they should work.

A man walks into a bank
"Banks don’t do business like the rest of us do business. Banks don’t do lunch to resolve an issue. They send a lawyer. Banks don’t care about your rights. They care about their rights. (Read your bank’s provided explanation of your banking rights, if you don’t believe me.) Banks don’t care about your bank balance. They care about their bank balance. And what banks really don’t do is take responsibility for their mistakes. They enforce penalties for ours."

Rolf Zwaan: The Dripping Stone Fallacy: Confirmation Bias in the Roman Empire and Beyond
"There is a black stone called the Dripping Stone, captured originally from the Etruscans and stored in a temple of Mars outside the city. We go in solemn procession and fetch it within the walls, where we pour water on it, singing incantations and sacrificing. Rain always follows--unless there has been a slight mistake in the ritual, as is frequently the case."

"And of course nobody bothers to look for small errors in the ritual when it is raining cats and dogs, or for hidden moderators when p<.05"

BayesFactor: Software for Bayesian inference: How to train undergraduate psychologists to be post hoc BS generators
"The assignment: Students are assigned an article from a peer-reviewed psychological journal and asked to critique it. [...] The basic problem with this assignment is that students are not particularly well-versed in any particular psychological topic, nor in psychological research methods. On the other hand peer-reviewed articles have been reviewed by people who are, which means that whatever problems remain with the research have evaded skilled reviewers. [...] Upon reading such an article and having difficulty find a critique, a student is in an awkward position: they must write an essay. So what do they do? They come up with whatever critiques come to mind, which are likely to be low-quality critiques. I suspect readers of this blog have experienced these sorts of critiques in student assignments: maybe there are cultural differences? The sample seems small. Are these really the best stimuli to use? They must choose a number of these arguments, and argue for them, in spite of the fact that they don't have sufficient knowledge on which to base such a critique. We're training them in the fine art of bullshit."

Nobody Knows What They're Doing
"This is the most pervasive of of all Washington legends: that politicians in Washington are ceaselessly, ruthlessly, effectively scheming. That everything that happens fits into somebody's plan. It doesn't. Maybe it started out with a scheme, but soon enough everyone is, at best, reacting, and at worst, failing to react, and always, always they're doing it with less information than they need."
