More than marginally entertaining ...

A list of euphemisms, drawn from the published literature, for results that do not obtain statistical significance at conventional levels.

Of course, it makes little sense to set up an arbitrary, binary cutoff level for the p-value, but that is, sadly, the world that we live in as we await the casual bayesian revolution.
