Practical tips for statisticians (part 2)

Things STATA cannot do:

  • knead your feet
  • explain the meaning of your data
  • understand telepathically transmitted instructions
  • raise the dead
  • tap-dance
  • turn silver into gold*
  • love you back
  • moan at incompetent users

NB: This list is incomplete and applies to the versions 10 and lower.

*literally, that is; otherwise:

gen silver = 37
rename silver gold
