## Comment: Small sample sizes, and Correlation IS causation (Score 5, Funny) 243

If you like to use sample sizes that are too small, then I would like to interest you in another useful technique.

Correlation

For example:

The tides cause the moon. The correlation proves it.

Similarly, murder rates are higher in the summer, and ice cream sales are higher in summer months. Therefore ice cream causes murder.

I hope that was helpful.
