As many of you know, Baby Elms is "leash trained"; by that I mean she minimally resists my attempts to "walk her" and will tolerate your putting a collar and leash on her so long as you refer to them as her "bathing suit". Here she is in her "bathing suit" enjoying a scenic drive to Mat's for an afternoon of empiricalling, Mario Karting, and window sill sitting -
Their french toast is INSANE; it tastes like a cake smothered in doughnut with a pancake in the middle. Also, the waitress informed me that "raw sugar" is indistinguishable from "processed sugar", when I asked for just the good old white stuff. I sensed a hint of snarkiness in her comment, but, then again, it was early and I hadn't yet had my coffee...

Quick question: Does anyone out there know how you should interpret results from an independent t-test if your sample sizes are unequal? Specifically, I am showing significant differences at Time 1 (subsequent to any treatment) with regards to a sample of completers compared to noncompleters. 20 people completed the treatment, while only 8 dropped out. Should I take the significant differences between these groups seriously, or does the fact that the non-completers group only consisted of 8 subjects undermine the strength of this finding? I am clearly hoping that I DO NOT have significant differences between completers and non-completers at Time 1, although if there are, I will need to include this in my discussion and perhaps account for any discrepancies in later analysis. Any thoughts on this will be greatly appreciated!
