Research Money Wasted

There are a lot of people wasting time on doing bad research into things we already know. Examples include:
-Viagra reduces jet-lag for hamsters. No, I am not kidding.
-Rats can't understand Dutch or Japenese backwards. Heck, I can't understand them forward.

Now, with all the "duh" research going on we add the social-science research that tries to prove bad hypotheses. For instance - Disney films perpetuate heteronormativity. This is also "duh" research, but more dangerous because it attacks the core of our society. As David Novak points out.
