Most stats texts leave the impression that you can just throw a dependent and several independent variables into a regression program and then get a sensible result, ignoring the fact that the world can be fairly complex. Students who are interested in doing proper analysis seem very interested in discussing some of the stupidities that can happen, and it should be covered more.
