What I said

Timothy Burke articulates in a far better way an idea that Frequent Commenter Scott and I discussed (probably very loudly in a way so as to maximally annoy other patrons) at a bar in Chicago sometime last year, although my pitch was more for Mythbusters gone social science. Then again, maybe just using straight Mythbusters is a better idea; I doubt very many people would tune in to watch Kari Byron analyze data in SPSS.

I’m really glad you posted this, and I wish I coulda been part of your bar conversation; it’s exactly something I think about a lot. In my intro classes, i actually make “mythbusting” the theme of the chapter on early America and the Constitution…glad to see other people see things the same way.


A complete aside: is it “name yourself like a pirate would talk” day today at SN?
