Confirmation Bias…on October 14, 2011 at 12:01 am
I always seem to catch people using this logical fallacy and I usually call them on it. But every time I call them on it I end up looking like an ass. hmm… was that confirmation bias right there?
Been a busy week. You see I also work for my family right now along with doing I am ARG. So I’m constantly working pretty much.
HERE’S A PICTURE OF A DUCK BEING AN ASSHOLE.
So… T-shirts are still coming I just need to make up a promotional video for the indiegogo page. I expect it next week to be up… I also expect prints to be available then too. No guarantees right now as I have to juggle a bunch of stuff. but I’d like to have the pre-order stuff ready for you guys so there’s shirts available for the holiday season. I’m working on it.
Next week there will be a surprise for you too… let’s just say you’ll be getting double the comics next week…
Have a great weekend guys.
First, working late tonight….. need a coffee…. and now im slacking off reading comics.
OH YOU… what are we gonna do with you brian…
I love Science. Science should come back to me…(incidentally, I spent last night looking up what all I’d have to do to switch my incomplete major to Science…and that would include Calculus? Not so sure about that plan anymore…)
Also. Do you play Devil’s Advocate?
all. the. time.
I love Al pacino.
Ah yes, the Confirmation Bias, also know as Confirmitas Biasias. Hah hah hah, I learnt of it in my time at AP Psychology.
Lol. you’d be surprised the amount of people that use this as fact… bugs the hell out of me…
i love how Ryan has his own lab coat on lol
I was only appropriate.
So THAT’S what it’s called. I quite often find myself noticing confirmation biases, because I tend to approach things with a lot of skepticism.
Sleeveless science jackets are awesome!
Yay for skepticism!
And truly the only way to wear it.
You’re saying you tested that place’s coffee on humans first? You’re a madman! Real sciencemen would give the joe to a monkey and observe carefully while stroking their majestic manbeards.
Theres a dog in the comic for a reason….
He does not appear caffeinated. I call shenanigans! :p
Pff, clearly it was a two year experiment with a one year canine test.
They… They… Are surprisingly effective at protecting eyes in this case.
I don’t mean to sound weird by shoutyping GOGGLES!!
But goggles and I have a weird affiliation.
It’s probably why I own seven pair. And hope to one day have an outfit covered in them.
I love GOGGLES!!
I wish I had a ginormous lab that I somehow managed to create underground like Dexter.
Schools are the gym’s for your brain..
You gave the dog a labcoat. This is why I love this comic. My daily smile 😀
‘. . . double the comics next week’
I really am far too excited about that sentence than I should be
We all are bT; we all are :).
Is the dog a reference to a flash video; “leave your dog at home while you do science”
nope, but now I’m oddly curious.
a dog in a labcoat always makes my day!
and dont worry when someones logic is flawed you have the RIGHT to rub it in their face! its one of those unwritten rules
Well this just had to remind me of this… (the moral I’m refering to comes at the end of the video – as usual)
