Below is a (very short, possibly humorous) video I made in which the superhero Mr. P Value argues with the superhero Mrs. F Critical. I hope you enjoy it!

(FYI, it contains profanity).

If people would like (or need) some background to get the video, here are some cliffnotes:

1) P value refers to the liklihood your research results were by chance. It usually has to be below .05 for the differences you found to have any real meaning.

2) F critical is the value that must be "crossed" in order for p value to be significant.

3) If F critical is passed, then the p value gets glory (so to speak) because it is now significant.

4) Bonferroni is a conservative stats adjustment used when making many comparisons between effects. it makes it more likely that p will be non-significant and that F critical will not "have her threshold" crossed.

Note: I made this video on
