Back when I was a postgrad student, my reaction to a high R2 value* was "Yay, it works!" Now it's more like "It's a trick. Get an axe."

(Seriously, I am pleasantly surprised when admin data shows any sort of correlation to theory at all. Predicting admin data with R2=0.85 from a simple rule of thumb? That's just unsettling.)

*Translation: the data follows a nice straight line.
