  1. @Svat, Thanks. Had read the Feynman articles before.
    Just read the “Why Most Published Research Findings Are False”.

    I have always cringed about the lack of absolute determinism, when reading about new knowledge created in medicine, where the conclusions are fully dependant on a survey result.
