    courses in my life, several at the graduate level, Designed Experiments, stats related to quality assurance, reliability engineering and the like.  It's a straightforward exercize to determine sample size and the confidence interval for a properly designed research instrument that doesn't introduce bias in the questions, like "Is Obama Black?" followed by "do you think a black president is likely to fail?"
