@,TheQuantumPhysicist: Dude(INSERT COMMA HERE) your messed up more than I thought. I(INSERT HYPHEN HERE) m not going to tell you about every sentence like a kid, I'll do a (SIMPLISTIC) thing. *YES YOU WILL!*

According to the dictionary, claim is a formally (THE WORD YOU WERE HOPING FOR IS "FORMAL") request or demand;(UNINTELLIGIBLE NONSENSE FOLLOWS.) say that one owns or has earned (something). I'll take an example of my my last sentence.

"Nonetheless, I(INSERT HYPHEN HERE) m (INANE CLAIM FOLLOWS) sure your other friends will come in support of you, and then I'll have another laugh."

How the hell is this supposed to be CLAIM!!!(REMOVE EXCLAMATION MARKS AND INSERT A QUESTION MARK HERE) Plus, the absolute riduculous (SPELLING ERROR "RIDICULOUS.}) thing is you added 2 claims, which makes it look even more like a disaster. (HINT-- IT WAS A DISASTER) (UNFOUNDED CLAIM FOLLOWS.) Bro, your messed up, like really.

(MIND READING CLAIM FOLLOWS) And your next post is going to classify this post as claims and suppositons,(INSERT PERIOD) (DID YOU MEAN SUPPOSITIONS?) ("WHATEVER WAS ERASED.) I(INSERT HYPHEN HERE) m quite embarrased (I THINK YOU WERE EMBARRASSED AND NOT EMBARRASED.) at myself at wasting time on a person who himself is at the height of joblessness. Bro, work up.... (I'M CURIOUS WHY YOU WOULD SEE JOBLESSNESS AS AN INSULT. OF ALL THE POSSIBLE INSULTS YOU COULD POSSIBLY FLING AT ANOTHER PERSON, "JOBLESS" IS AT THE TOP OF YOUR LIST. WHY NOT BE CREATIVE?

*You yammering onion-eyed lascivious puke-covered illiterate canker-blossom!

*You misbegotten degenerated white-livered drunken divel producing clay-brain.

*You beef-witted rump-fed perfidious mammering sheep-molesting tyrant.

REMEMBER! YOU ARE WRITING FOR AN AUDIENCE. YOU MIGHT AS WELL BE ENTERTAINING AS YOU ARE WOEFULLY FAILING IN ALL OTHER DEPARTMENTS.

Just what are you testing for? The placebo effect is well documented, your test would not add anything more to the database on placebos. IMO the only thing this would test would be how individuals deal with a change to their routine. And you can probably collect a lot of data on that by interviewing sports athletes who get a change on their pre-game routine.

I don't know how you can collect a decent sample, how can you discern an individual who just likes to pray a lot and read his holy book, versus another one incident away from getting on the next flight to Jihad central.

I have great difficulty in planning such tests, and I also have even greater concerns as to the motivation and goals of this test.

A hundred students isn't

A hundred students isn't nearly enough. You need at least ten times that for the ability to reach any conclusion, and even then it must be based on a whole raft of variables such as which ones of them got that arrogant science teacher in 8th grade that did a shit job grading their papers, passing them without the required reading material.
