Research takes time. Time people don’t have!
If you’re sitting in class right now secretly reading this on your laptop, take a look around. 99% of your classmates wouldn’t even read the cliff notes to Clifford the Big Red Dog. Lettuce be reality.
Say you had to write a 10 page essay on why ole’ Cliffy is so damn big, would you:
A. Visit the local library?
B. Read the material?
C. Hit up girls on Facebook till 4 in the morning. Find barely related quotes off reputable academic resources like AskJeeves. Copypasta. Nine pages double spaced. U mad?
If you chose C,
Congratulations Future Brofesor Brah!
You’re well on your way to a BroScience Ph.D in BS from the University of BroScience! Kudos!
*If you chose A or B, well I guess NASA is hiring, them and Starbucks. Guess which one you’ll be working for!
Here’s Some Cliffs:
BroScience is when someone makes an unsupportable claim, without evidence, support from academic institutions (well maybe Phoenix Online University) or backing from years of non-research.
It is speculation based on gut feelings, presented as fact. Originally coined in bodybuilding circles to explain superstition or progress.
Classic BroScience Examples:
Does eating late make me fat?
Does eating carbs make me fat?
