Why are people compelled to use phrases like "studies show..." as evidence for things that are already common sense to most reasonably intelligent people?
I've been hearing this commercial a lot on the radio recently. It advocates getting children started on education as early as possible in life. Or something like that. I stopped paying attention when I realized how insultingly stupid it is.
Studies how that children who do well in high school are more likely to graduate from college.
Well, damn! These radio commercial people sure are smart. I'd have never guessed that on my own.
I can only assume that their target audience are people without common sense, idiots, or both.
What I'd give for a radio with an intelligence knob on it.
Oh, well. It can't be any worse than television.
