I Should Not Be Trusted With Knives
Of late, I seem to be having trouble in the safe operation of the simple kitchen knife. And I have no fewer than three self-inflected knife wounds on my hands from the last two days. One of which spontaneously started bleeding on the bus today (and, of course, I did not have a band-aid on me. An iPod, a notebook, a travel mug, an umbrella, several pens, a book – all these things were at my disposal, but band-aids, not so much).
Now, you might be wondering, “didn’t she learn after the first time that she should be more careful? or after the second time??” I’m a scientist people! We require replication to have any confidence in anything!
Hypothesis: cutting your hand hurts.
Conclusion: I accept the hypothesis (p < 0.05*).
*sorry. The nerd in me required a statistical analysis, albeit a completely made up one.
