That reminds me of a couple of things from the the 'what phrases in
research papers *really* mean' list I've got pinned above my desk.

'The four hour sample was not studied' - I dropped it on the floor.

'The four hour determination may not be significant' - I dropped it on
the floor, but scooped most of it up.

I see you standing there, far out along the way,
   I want to touch you but, the night becomes the day.
I count the words that I am never going to say,
   And I see you, in midnight blue.    (ELO - Midnight Blue)
