    Statistical errors. P values, the gold standard of statistical validity, are not as reliable as many scientists assume. P values have always had critics. In their almost nine decades of existence, they have been likened to mosquitoes (annoying and impossible to swat away), and the emperor's new clothes (fraught with obvious problems that everyone ignores). One researcher suggested rechristening the methodology 'statistical hypothesis inference testing,' presumably for the acronym.
