Statistical Torque?

a: Sample size ~
b: a lever

What: "Not unique to the Chi square, sample size is like a lever. Long enough lever and you can flip over a Mack truck. Does that mean the truck is unstable? With a large enough sample size you can prove differences in anything. That is why you should have been taught to look for practical significance if you see statistical significance."
