New Study Proves that Utter Nonsense is Still Profitable

This just in from the Isle of  Laputa:

"Study finds the mind is a frequent, but not happy, wanderer
November 11, 2010
People spend 46.9 percent of their waking hours thinking about something other than what they're doing, and this mind-wandering typically makes them unhappy. So says a study that used an iPhone web app to gather 250,000 data points on subjects' thoughts, feelings, and actions as they went about their lives."

I am certainly unhappy that such utter piffle masquerading as science is being funded at all. Why don't we set up an academy of naval gazing instead? Oh, pardon me, I forgot about string theory...
