correlation does not equal causation!!!!

So apparently, facebook messes with your grades.

I get quite irritated when so-called researchers, pull a survey and then ‘extrapolate’ results from it.

Get the point. People who work for a 3.5 – 4.0 are going to put it more hours than people who get 3.0 – 3.5. Whatever the environment.

Why? Because people who get those kind of grades work neurotically for them. As well put by a slashdot commenter, they ‘cannot see past their GPA’.

The crowd who get those grades got them  before facebook, and will continue to do so after. If they have a facebook account. they won’t admit it. facebook users will spend time socializing anyway, they dont need facebook to do so.

It’s times like these when I miss writing on actual paper and stabbing a writing instrument through the page.
