"IT HAS LONG BEEN KNOWN"
.... I didn't look up the original reference.
"A DEFINITE TREND IS EVIDENT"
.... This data is practically meaningless.
"WHILE IT HAS NOT BEEN POSSIBLE TO PROVIDE DEFINITE ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS"
.... An unsuccessful experiment, but I still have hope of getting funding.
"THREE OF THE SAMPLES WERE CHOSEN FOR DETAILED STUDY"
.... The other results didn't make any sense.
"TYPICAL RESULTS ARE SHOWN"
.... This is the prettiest graph.
"THESE RESULTS WILL BE IN A SUBSEQUENT REPORT"
.... I might get around to this sometime, if pushed (or funded).
"IN MY EXPERIENCE"
"IN CASE AFTER CASE"
"IN A SERIES OF CASES"
.... Three times.
"IT IS BELIEVED THAT"
.... I think.
"IT IS GENERALLY BELIEVED THAT"
.... A couple of others think so, too.
"CORRECT WITHIN AN ORDER OF MAGNITUDE"
"ACCORDING TO STATISTICAL ANALYSIS"
.... Rumor has it.
"A STATISTICALLY ORIENTED PROJECTION OF THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THESE FINDINGS"
.... A wild guess.
"A CAREFUL ANALYSIS OF OBTAINABLE DATA"
.... Three pages of notes were obliterated when I knocked over a bottle of beer.
"IT IS CLEAR THAT MUCH ADDITIONAL WORK WILL BE REQUIRED BEFORE A COMPLETE
UNDERSTANDING OF THIS PHENOMENON OCCURS"
.... I don't understand it
"AFTER ADDITIONAL STUDY BY MY COLLEAGUES"
.... They don't understand it either.
"THANKS ARE DUE TO JOE BLOTZ FOR ASSISTANCE WITH THE EXPERIMENT AND
TO CINDY ADAMS FOR VALUABLE DISCUSSIONS"
.... Mr. Blotz did the work and Ms. Adams explained to me what it meant.
"A HIGHLY SIGNIFICANT AREA FOR EXPLORATORY STUDY"
.... A totally useless topic selected by my committee.
"IT IS HOPED THAT THIS STUDY WILL STIMULATE FURTHER INVESTIGATION IN
.... I quit.
I've tried to identify an author, but have only found this in very many places on the web without attribution.
If anybody identifies an author, let me know, and I'll put a proper link to that person's source rather than just offering it as is.
