Reading Retraction Watch is oddly comforting. My research might not amount to much, but at least I'm not internationally famous for scientific fraud.

@jaranta It is, butI wish we had a stat for the % of scientists who end up with deliberate misconduct (rather than just mistaking something) retractions. Because the anti-science army is right there waiting in the wings to point out that "scientists lie"
