    The two most common elements in the universe are hydrogen and human stupidity. . . . Harlan Ellison.

    A true irony, the dumbest people don’t think of themselves that way, and most of the smart people understand how much they themselves don’t know.
    So dumb folks are dumb for thinking themselves smart,
    and smart people are smart for realizing they’re dumb.

    An unfortunate corollary of that dynamic is that dumb people often end up running things.

    Yet, we give them permission to “drive” multi-ton behemoths in that condition.

    These days, what you well describe is often referred to as the Dunning-Kruger Effect:

    Hey, where’s my rerun? I was promised reruns through August!

    Good strip today, but I refuse to believe Jeff knows and could use “obtuse” correctly. Clearly, someone wrote that for him.
