Peer Review is just “Security Theater”

OMG, THERE ARE MOTHERFUCKING SNAKES ON THIS MOTHERFUCKING PLANE!!!!!!!!

What would you prefer?

A long line to get on a plane that is guaranteed to be safe but blows up as you are relaxing in your seat.

A short line to get on a plane that comes with a warning that it might blow up and you should look out for any suspicious activity.

Seriously, has anyone ever been part of a journal club where they didn’t talk shit about the paper?

Are you a nonbeliever? Then welcome to the sermon.

There were so many problems I thought there was a bug in MY software.

How did this get past peer review?

I disagree.
