Dear Ohlbe,

Thank you very much for sharing. I assume that the 2nd author is actually from the unseen university which is known to be in Ankh Morpok but I did not know that Ankh Morpok is actually located in France. This is new to me and explains a lot ;-).

best regards

martin

PS.: Here is some additional review/feedback I recevied on this paper which I would also like to share: There is a concern that their subject allocation method did not use randomization, and introduces the possibility of bias. They said “In a pre-test phase, we asked each participant in the treatment group to roll 500m in a straight line on a push-scooter. Participants who fell or died during the pre-test were reallocated to our control group (two falls, one death).”
