  • Self Confidence is a dangerous thing

    I'm not sure that anyone understood the impact the internet would have on our society. We have access to the entirety of recorded knowledge. No doctor, lawyer, pharmacist, scientist, etc. has access to more information that you. That is a good thing. it is also a bad thing. Knowledge can be dangerous without the ability to understand.

    Want an example? what if you need an appendectomy? Here is how it's done. You don't need a surgeon. Just watch the video and see for yourself. Anyone should be able to watch this and perform the procedure. (Okay, even after you watch the video, Please do not try this at home...) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OK-_4Wx3QY

    For years, we have pushed the idea of having high self confidence. We have told everyone they can do anything they set their minds to. We lied. Not everyone is smart enough to be a doctor. Not everyone can pass the bar and practice law. Not everyone has the ability to understand the science behind tricking a few of your cells into producing an antigen that will start a process to build your immunity to a virus. Not everyone has the basic intelligence required to truly understand everything they read. What we need instead of self confidence is self awareness.

    Do you want to fix the problem that we have created over the last 30 years? Stop blowing smoke up people's butts telling them how smart they are. Help them to be realistic and to see what their weaknesses are as well as their strengths. Stop telling everyone that they are smart. Having a little common sense isn't enough for every topic. Sometimes you really do have to be smarter than average to understand something.

    • The End of Covid
      by BillAbles
      Back when all this started almost a year ago, I said that this virus stuff would likely be over in a couple of months. Then, once I actually started looking at the facts, I said that, by the time people realized how bad the pandemic would get, it would be too late. So, with that, I got one wrong and one right.

      There seems to be about 2 weeks between exposure to the virus and the reported infections. Now, I am making another prediction: We will see Covid cases and death rates plummet...
