Misconceptions about Relations The article: http://plus.maths.org/issue31/features/stickland/http://plus.maths.org/issue31/features/stickland/ Plus Magazine: 31st Issue This article talks about how humans misunderstand relations between things mathematically. For example, the article states that the longer the hand of a human, the better reader he is. But this is not much factual, because most grown ups have long hands, obviously thats why they are called grown ups 'cause they have grown, and they are good readers, whereas a child with a short hand is not much of a reader. Because he is learning to read and eventually will become a good reader and his hand will also grow.
More Stuff Explained Another example they are giving is that research has proved that the more people eat ice-cream the more sharks attack humans. This is true because in summer people eat more ice-cream and go to the beach to hangout. This gives more chance of people being attacked by sharks.
The Conclusion The conclusion is that research needs to be done very deeply. It should also be done on a large scale rather than just a few hundred people to make it more evident. Factors causing the problem, or the matter being researched, should be understood correctly, and all links between the two should be considered.
