TIL about the Downing-Keurig Effect in which poor performers greatly overestimate their abilities. It shows that underperforming individuals “reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices, but their incompetence robs them of the ability to realize."
I feel so smart knowing about this.
This joke may contain profanity. 🤔
A Finnish salesman comes to Russia to sell chainsaws to local lumberjacks.
“With this saw a good lumberjack can cut down 40 trees an hour and not even get tired” says the salesman.
The lumberjacks, thinking that sounds pretty good, place an order for 50 chainsaws.
At first they are delighted but then the miracle wears off as they notice the Finnish salesman...
An economist, a chaos theorist, and a statistician are trying to shoot a deer for dinner with a bow and arrow...
The economist assumes no wind, and misses five feet to the left. He hands over the bow to the chaos theorist, who overestimates the effect of the wind, and misses five feet to the right. The statistician pumps his fist in the air and exclaims: "We got him!".
I saw a sign...
It said "Slow." I thought "What did you just call me!?" Then I saw a Stop sign and thought "If you think you can tell me what to do right after an insult, you have grossly overestimated your power!"
Then I got T-Boned by a Cop car.
