What is your experiment? Seating your teacher on a homemade electric chair to see what happens?
I got a free four year scholarship when I did that. It was a little hard to open the windows in my dorm room though.February 13, 2011 10:38 pm at 10:38 pm #739891600 Kilo BearMember
Hoods – 409? That belongs in the cleaning lady thread :).February 13, 2011 11:06 pm at 11:06 pm #739892charliehallParticipant
Here is a suggestion:
Review the first chapter of the Book of Daniel. The intervention was Daniel and his fellow Jewish slaves eating seeds; the control was the non-Jewish slaves eating meat. It is actually the first recorded example of a control group in history; the second would not be until the scurvy experiments in the mid-18th century. You could re-do Daniel’s experiment except that if the study participants are Jews, you’d have to use kosher rather than non-kosher meat: Half your volunteers would be vegetarian for ten days and half would be meat eaters. A stronger experiment would be if you randomly assigned your volunteers via a coin toss to the vegetarian or meat group. Define before the study what you would call “healthier”: Get some independent panel to evaluate the volunteers. Maybe you could also have a nurse or doctor take the blood pressure of the participants. Then let us know the results!February 13, 2011 11:08 pm at 11:08 pm #739893ZeesKiteParticipant
Yes, what is your experiment? We have a most advanced technical dept. in some corner of this C.R. willing and able to assist you. Kindly tell us what it is.February 14, 2011 12:05 am at 12:05 am #739894yoyo56Member
