"i am statistically significant! p < .0001"

How cool!

Are you proud of your geekiness? Do you revel in your knowledge of statistics? Or maybe you are just a researcher with that extra sass . . . well maybe these t-shirts are for you! The company is called Sassy Statistics, and the shirts are hilarious. I think I will have to buy a couple. I especially like the "don't be mean," and the "i am statistically significant" shirts.

go check it out, even if just out of curiousity, haha.
