I was wondering if it was possible to do a normality test on a very 
large sample dataset. It is approx. 160,000 residual estimates from 
meshes modelling the brain surfaces of 50 subjects (25 patients). 
shapiro.test only works with at most 5000 points. Are there issues with 
very large samples sizes that I should be aware of?
