Prof Tanja Bueltmann on Twitter: "You left the UK to live in the Caribbean, @JohnCleese. What do you think that makes you? An immigrant. Just like the people who make London the great cosmopolitan city it is. Your hypocrisy is astounding. And to then conf

“You left the UK to live in the Caribbean, @JohnCleese. What do you think that makes you? An immigrant. Just like the people who make London the great cosmopolitan city it is. Your hypocrisy is astounding. And to then conflate that with the remain vote is shameful.”

The Dunning-Kruger Prayer
"You see, if you’re very, very stupid, how can you possibly realize that you’re very, very stupid? You’d have to be relatively intelligent to realize how stupid you are…. [Knowing] how good you are at something requires exactly the same skills as it does to be good at that thing in the first place. Which means—and this is terribly funny—that if you’re absolutely no good at something at all, then you lack exactly the skills that you need to know that you’re absolutely no good at it."
