STUDY: The People Who Funded This Study Did A Damn Fine Job Of It


December 12, 2016 - Universe

According to a new study out of University of East Kansas College, the private funders of a new health study did a fine job lining the researchers’ pockets with cash.

“Our analysis indicates this anonymous corporation did indeed send us a wheelbarrow filled with cash,” said Professor Richard Williams, who headed the study.

Williams and his colleagues identified several characteristics, including the timeliness and quantity of the cash transfer, that made the exchange a success. He sais he hopes future studies can focus on how to improve data-faking techniques to acquire larger sums.

“Three more studies and I’m buying that boat,” Williams said.
