There are indeed those with balls on chin! Well one person really. In a movie. No beard, no room for that.

I can't remember the last time I saw an honest piece of serious research that stated categorically that something has been proven [and that they don't require further research to prove it even more].

The 'further research needs to be done,' is an advertisement which is saying, "We have an available FUNDING BIAS that would benefit your interests and our University has a prestigious name that rubber stamps all of the lies were are willing to prove on your behalf."

But obviously more research, funded by more research grants, is needed to prove this with 99% certainty. Does anybody know of a funding source I could apply to?
