Dunning-Kruger Effect


So, I’m driving down the Interstate thinking about stupid … when two guys on PBS start talking about … you guessed it. It has a name. The Dunning-Kruger effect.


Bertrand Russell (“One of the painful things about our time is that those who feel certainty are stupid, and those with any imagination and understanding are filled with doubt and indecision”)

More later. Cya.

Everything comes down to quantum mechanics and relativity. And lots of brain scientists are trying to get consciousness from both or just QM. But … no one understands QM.

All the 160 IQ people are going into other fields. Waiting For Dirac.
