Correlation is Not Causation

Is it just me, or is it only since we’ve had medication for it that we’ve had “restless leg syndrome?”

Michael keeps joking that he's going to start a disease called "Wacky Eyebrow Complex" and make a million dollars by developing a cure!

Even in the field of mental health, Michael and I have talked about disorders like depression and anxiety and how correlation does not equal causation. Very often, the symptom the drug is treating isn't really the problem at all.

Here's a great video that illustrates the point much better than I could.

So, does anyone out there have Wacky Eyebrow Complex?


Are you sure?!
