How to Make Comics Sound Like Science

Another one of #canidothistypeofresearchtoo papers.

“The year is 50 B.C. Gaul is entirely occupied by the Romans. Well, not entirely ... one small village of the indomitable Gauls still holds out against the invaders. And life is not easy for the Roman legionaries who garrison the fortified camps of Totorum, Aquarium, Laudanum and Compendium ... .”

Roman nationality, hypoglossal paresis, lost helmet, and ingestion of the magic potion by the aggressor were significantly correlated with severe initial impairment of consciousness.

Were any Gauls given a placebo potion against which the medical efficacy of the supposedly active potion might have been measured? A double-blind test would surely have been appropriate here.
