Links to studies, etc.

This list is constantly under construction.  It’s basically a list of things I read, think are interesting, and then wish I could remember later.  As a rule, I try to link to the blog that I found the study on as well as the study itself. 

Additionally, the assertions that have no links listed underneath are basically my personal reminders that “Hey, I saw this somewhere and when I have time I need to go back and find it because it was cool and interesting.”  Because if I don’t write them down, I forget about them entirely until I need them, LOL.
