Dear Öberster Größter Meister!

❝ Please give me a good reason to believe all those factors (plus all the ones I forgot) are the same across just any two studies. You pick and show me. Until then I consider pooled CV's a curiosity as useful as headmounted toilet paper etc.

Please hav a look at Guersey McPearson's prose, Essay "A dip in the Pool":

Quote: "It seems to me that people who object to pooling different studies but would quite happily accept any one of them on its own, if only it were large enough, for the purpose of informing medical decision making, should be given thinking lessons."

More in the whole essay.
