Bucket Haiku

Facing my spitting inhibitions with fortitude. Maybe my bombardier beetle genes did not express...

Shower bucket for grey water usage because of the drought.

Morning mist over the beaches of Paternoster.



Bucket Haiku

Empty, full
Full, empty
Kick it

 We’ll have to console ourselves with coffee and ice cream. And maybe carrot cake.

The Dunning-Kruger Song

1 Share

By somewhat popular demand, here’s a video of “The Dunning-Kruger Song”:

The song honors the research study “Unskilled and Unaware of It: How Difficulties in Recognizing One’s Own Incompetence Lead to Inflated Self-Assessments,” by David Dunning and Justin Kruger, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, vol. 77, no. 6, December 1999, pp. 1121-34.

For writing that paper, Dunning and Kruger were awarded the Ig Nobel Prize for psychology, in the year 2000.

The behavior described in Dunning and Kruger’s study has become known as “the Dunning-Kruger Effect.” The Dunning-Kruger effect is on display every day, all around you.

“The Dunning Kruger Song” is the thrilling conclusion of “The Incompetence Opera,” which you can watch in its entity, if you wish.
