If you're looking for a Friday afternoon pick-me-up, you won't find it at Tabitha M. Powledge's On Science Blogs--unless fraud, lies, and statistics stimulate your synapses.
She starts the discussion with the PNAS paper on misconduct in the life sciences, broadens that to misconduct in other sciences, and even tracks down a story about scientists in South Korea, China, and Iran who set up a scheme so they could glowingly review their own papers.
On a lighter note, she turns to the presidential debate. There she provides links to stories pointing out errors, lies, and damn lies relating to healthcare, green energy, and even one story on why it was a good thing that climate change was not mentioned in the debate.
Mercifully, she says nothing about Big Bird.
