Post hoc ergo propter hoc

A new study by the medical school at Daniel Webster’s favorite little institution of higher learning has uncovered the remarkable proposition that “Teens who watch R-Rated Movies Drink More.” This appears to be attributed to the fact that "Ninety percent of R-rated films have depictions of drinking . . . ."

We look forward to their next investigation, which will study Dartmouth grads who watch pornography all day long. More HERE.

I don't exactly disagree with these findings, but I suspect that the R movies have little causation. Rather, I suppose that the parents who forbid R movies also tend to be parents who do a lot of other stuff.
