Hi David and Helmut,

» From Stephen’s Statistical Issues in Drug Development, p.457.

An other source of similar pieces of wisdom is "The Devil's Drug Development Dictionaries" :cool:.

Here a taster (one of my favorites):

Statistician.
  1. One devoted to generating statements that are probably true and definitely useless.
  2. One who wears a condom for telephone sex.
  3. One who thinks that loving your data is more exciting than dating your lover.
  4. One who can't run experiments himself, prefers to tell others how they should, steals the data and expects to be thanked for it.
  5. One who thinks that the way to be efficient is to measure as little as possible in a trial that costs millions to run.

Regards,

Detlew
