Passion Party #362 - Studying The Obvious

It seems like every day I read about a new study done by scientific researchers that tells me something I already know. People are spending hours of time and years of study to find out things that, if they had used common sense, would be obvious.

- The Santa Fe Institute discovers that when people move to a bigger city they earn 15% more money and walk faster!
- A Harvard and UC San Diego study finds that if a person is grossly overweight, the odds are that other family members and friends will also be obese!
- Harvard Medical School research shows that when a person is happy, their friends are more likely to be happy!
- A Stanford sociologist has found that the more people you know, the more likely it is you will be successful on a job search!

No, Duh!
Perhaps I should do a new study:
People find it reassuring to do a study and find it proves what we intuitively know!
