I hate stats today

I spend all yesterday and today up to my ears in statistics. Now I'm staring at a long series of P values for all kinds of dependent and independent parameters, and there seems to be no pattern to it. For instance, there's a significant difference between populations in the north and south when I look only at exposed populations, but none of the egg densities come out significantly different.

Obviously, all of the statistical significance in the world won't help me if I don't know what it means.

I just want enough results to send off my stupid abstract to WSN by tomorrow...

I feel:
tired tired
I'm listening to:
