This (or here) got (supposedly) peer reviewed and subsequently published. It was an attempt to show that some sources would publish anything and it succeeded. Yes, they retracted it once they got called on it, but that doesn’t change the fact that it got through. Basically, there appears to be a crazy amount of shit research on COVID-19 making it through the process. Standing on a street corner and hounding passersby during a lockdown is not a substitute for stratified random sampling, you fucknugget.
For those who don’t want to read the PDF, it contains gems such as:
We have not classified the accidents by type, date or anything else, essentially by laziness.
Study 2 was excluded from analysis and from this paper, as it did not provide informative results (i.e. the results we wanted).
In Study 3, we tested the efficiency of our protocol in the prevention of PSA: HCQ + AZT (or spiramycin or nothing) +/− Zinc (or Magnesium or a teaspoon of Benco (C or R in a circle, or maybe TM) +/− Vitamin D (or Selenium). We have sometimes added apples, as their therapeutic effectiveness is popularly recognized .
Two groups of volunteers (friends and relatives of the authors) were constituted.
In a pre-test phase, we asked each participant in the treatment group to roll 500m in a straight line on a push-scooter. Participants who fell or died during the pre-test were reallocated to our control group (two falls, one death).
In order to increase sensibility and specificity, we decided to run additional, exploratory analyses and searched another figure in Google Images about PSA (query equation: “accidents de trottinette”) and found this one, which seems in favor of our initial idea about the subject, so we performed a graph extraction procedure using Windows’ “Ctrl-C Ctrl-V” command  (Fig. 2).
We realized that oxygen saturation might be a good clinical indicator of mortality (after all, dead people typically do not breathe) – maybe even better than death itself. We thus went back to our participants to measure their oxygen saturation levels (after taking down their surgical mask, to avoid confounds). We did not receive official authorization to dig up the corpses of dead participants; we did try to dig them up anyway, but the cemetery keeper could no longer find the register of graves, and unfortunately we did not have the necessary material for several blind desecrations.
Even the authors are hilarious. Manis Javanica is the latin name for the Sunda Pangolin, for example. For you Pratchett fans, one of the authors has the title “General Practitioner and Independent Seeker of Science, Ankh, Morpork, France.”
