Pointless Research

I'm continually amazed at the sort of things supposedly intelligent, educated researchers will delve into and quantify in an earth-shaking report.

They do stuff like research to find out that men like beer and gravitate toward hot women with incredible pectoral development who respond to their advances. Who would have known?

Now, we've got this:

Twitter Me This, He Said Pointlessly

Wow, would you have ever guessed? Forty percent of "tweets" are pointless babble!

I think I'll apply for a government grant to study whether that percentage holds up as well in texting. If that works out for me, I'll then conduct an in-depth study to determine who the hell all those soccer moms are cell-phoning while on the way to daycare with a van full of toddlers at 7:30 in the morning. It must be important, but why so many of them?
