It’s time for another edition of our study of obvious studies — a recurring segment we call, “I Coulda Told You That.” Seriously, scientists get paid to come to the darnest conclusions.
Like this one: Students who have access to their phones in school end up with lower test scores, because they’re distracted. Wow. Much science!
In this edition, we’ll also take a look at how women deal with forgiving attractive men; how conspiracy theorists react to, um, conspiracies; and whether or not female journalists burn out faster than male ones.
We hate to tell you, but there are just no shockers involved in any of these.
