The p>0.05 journal

I want to start a journal called “P>0.05”. This journal will publish all the negative results in science. These would also be stored in a database. Think of all the great things we could do with this. We could, for example, plot p-value histograms for different disciplines. I bet most would have a flat distribution. We could also do it by specific association. A paper comes out saying chocolate is linked to weaker bones? Check the histogram and keep eating chocolate. Any publishers interested?
