|Coffee consumption vs number of researchers. The red dot is Germany.|
I passionately hate excel and I have no idea how to convince it to give me a p-value, but I've seen worse correlations being published. More coffee consumption linked to more research!
If you want to play with the data, you can download the excel sheet here. I've left out Singapore from the table because I wasn't sure whether the entry "0" meant there's no data, or nobody in Singapore drinks coffee. I've made a second plot where I left out the 15 main coffee export countries (according to Wikipedia), but visually it doesn't make much of a difference so I'm not showing you the graph. (It's in the excel sheet.) According to chartsbin.com the data on researchers per million inhabitants is from the UNESCO Institute for Statistics, and the data on coffee consumption is from the World Resources Institute.
Don't take this too seriously. I'd guess that you'd find a similar correlation for many consume goods. It has some amusement value though :o)
