Just For Fun: A Handy Guide For Discussing* Research You Don’t Agree With…

From Dylan Matthews at the Washington Post:

I love Dylan’s work, and I have to admit that this is almost perfect- thinking back to all of the research seminars I’ve been to, he just needs some boxes for “valid instruments” and “source of identification.” Then again, my grad school advisor did once try the “this all seems methodologically fine, it’s just not interesting to me” approach, so I am pondering whether a new branch should be added to advise on more general douchebaggery.

* In my experience, many academics are under the impression that they are merely “discussing” when they are doing what most normal humans would describe as arguing.

    Gads, I hate people who say I am arguing when I am discussing something… 🙂

    You’ll either have to dock and reequip a webber or bring a couple of
    light or moderate drones back with you. Zygor guides has long been at the forefront
    of the wave of leveling guides for World of Warcraft. Multiplayer games are always known for their radical
    awesomeness, just look at mainstream FPS games today.
