Dave, you're being too hasty. We should study the issue and determine if another study is a good idea.

Published in the well regarded journal DUH.

Peer review required.

Typical government obfuscation.

I think we need a study to determine why this happens.

Personally, I always waited until two days before the final.

It was a redundant study about redundancy.

Evidently Obama's line-by-line budget review missed cutting all this.

Your U.S. Department of Navel Gazing

Davec's Law - the inevitable result of any government funded study is that more study is required.

First Corollary - The person most qualified to do the follow on study is the one who did the first study.

Final Result – Endless useless studies will continue as long as the “free” money is available.

this reminds me of my favorite study article (OK, it's from Satirewire.com):


Visualize John Cleese or Graham Chapman (RIP) or Peter Bergman (RIP) saying this:

"Military precision??!???"

We're losing all the old madmen. Caroll Shelby (RIP) is dead, Mrs. Omni tells me.

It is things like this that make me want to laugh then I realize I'm paying for the US government and I want to cry.

Wait. You're paying for the US government? I wondered who was. Will you please stop?

If anyone needs me, I'll be in my study.

Caroll Shelby died?

Wow. Missed that one. A legend.

Tnx, Omni' ...

I am studiously studying the concept behind this study....

Brought to you by the Department of Redundancy Department.

Otto von Bismarck; "A committee is a group of people who individually can do nothing but together can decide that nothing can be done."

i work at the department of redundancy department. but seriously folks, when i was in grad school in 1533, i was elected to student government..........i served on......(wait for it) the committee on committees. i s**t you not.
the government has NOTHING on academia when it comes to strange bureaucracy.

I demand a Study Czar!

Your government inaction.

Ralph, that's a great quote. I'm going to add that to my collection!

The Shelby GT500 Mustang - best care made. Of course if the government were designing it they would still be in the study phase. Their motto - study everything to death and nothing gets done.
