Ionica Smeets (@ionicasmeets) via a TED talk presents a humorous, thoughtful look at correlation, including the limitations as well as value in this method.  From the site:  We are constantly presented with studies and news stories asserting things like, "night lights cause shortsightedness" or "married men live longer." But before we take these conclusions to heart, says Ionica Smeets, we should examine whether the connections we see are causational or are merely coincidental.
