Title text: I understand large sample sizes are key to a low standard error of the mean, but the entire sophomore class?
College (Undergraduate University, for international readers) is a time to find yourself, so the aphorism goes. This comic takes the joke a bit too far (a favorite on xkcd) with "experimenting with your sexuality". Usually, it is taken to mean the person is curious, and will have one night stands to test this, but not Megan. No, she was indeed experimenting, and experiments follow the Scientific method: hypothesize, experiment, draw conclusions, repeat. And statistically speaking, a large sample group decreases the error bounds on the results. A Control group in this context would be males. The title text implies that Megan "experimented" with the entire sophomore class (both males and females) before dating Cueball.

Female: Oh, hey, it's twelve of the dudes from control group B!
I'm cool with her past lesbian experimentation, but I wish she hadn't insisted the experiments be scientifically rigorous.
