Stating the bleedin' obvious

Stating the bleedin' obvious is a strict scientific field which receives considerable funding from several public bodies, including ICHTUT, I Could have Told You That. The subject was founded in the late 17th century, when physicist Isaac Newton discovered that apples, among other things, fall towards the ground.
This led Newton into a new area of study, where he produced other seminal works including, 'Being hit on the head with a brick hurts even more' and On the sheer unexpected pain caused by paper-cuts. His critics suggested that this early work restricted 'Stating the bleedin' obvious' solely to the field of things that hurt, and subsequently work was expanded into more diverse concepts. It is these early rivals that gave us the now textbook cases of It's hot today isn't it, Excessive alcohol can make you do stupid things and Food has been proven to cause weight gain.
In the intervening years the field has expanded dramatically, and now attracts several million dollars in grant money each year. While the field has changed considerably, the core concepts laid down by Newton and other early researchers still stand. Landmark work published in March 2004 indicated that paper cuts still hurt, but further extended this study to show that more paper cuts hurt even more.
