    You're supposed to include a conclusion/analysis, not just the references.

    There is a "slow" guy that works out at the gym doing who knows what. 1000 crunches at a time and then gets on the bench and reps out 185 like 50 times. I asked him how he was doing one day and he yelled at me "I WORK OUT BECAUSE IT MAKES ME FEEL GOOD"

    There's my scientific study for you.
