Speak Your Mind: Thank You, Captain Obvious

A couple of days ago The New York Times reported that science has confirmed the existence of bisexual men. Oh good. I’m glad that’s been cleared up. As someone who has done a bit of work with the LGBT community, this comes as no surprise. But I’m guess it’s good to have some data to back it up.

This got me thinking about other scientific discoveries that seem so obvious that it’s hard to believe anyone thought to study it. Not that I think some issues should be off limits to scientists. So-called “conventional wisdom” is notoriously inaccurate, and truth should be sussed out.

That said, I wonder if there are any other studies out there that fall into the “Thank you, Captain Obvious” file. Do you have any favorites?
