T-Test Trivia

Any statistical test that uses the t-distribution can be called a t-test. One of the most common is Student's t-test, named after "Student," the pseudonym that William Gosset used to hide his employment by the Guinness brewery in the early 1900s.  They didn't want their competitors to know that they were making better beer with statistics.
