If Professor Barney got desperate enough....he’d rig up some research project to suggest that eating sauerkraut and drinking Doctor Pepper....would delay menopause. After a month or two...some foundation would appear, and put two million dollars into the Professor’s project. Figure it’d take three years to squandor the money....so the Projessor and his five helpers would just sit around....eating most of the sauerkraut they bought, and drinking cases of Doctor Pepper. They’d produce a paper, and move onto the next research project.
I think I read about that study on FR. Most of the comments were on the order of, “Why on earth would you want to delay menopause?” and the rest were, “Our freepin’ tax dollars at work ... no, wait, at least it’s in Canada this time.”
