Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge.’

Yes, there are a lot of lemon juice drenched idiots out there.


Maybe David Brooks, but some NYT wag recently wondering the why of a Donald Trump, touted the ‘Dunning-Kruger effect.’ Well, here you go.

“One day in 1995, a large, heavy middle-aged man robbed two Pittsburgh banks in broad daylight. He didn’t wear a mask or any sort of disguise. And he smiled at surveillance cameras before walking out of each bank. Later that night, police arrested a surprised McArthur Wheeler. When they showed him the surveillance tapes, Wheeler stared in disbelief. ‘But I wore the juice,’ he mumbled. Apparently, Wheeler thought that rubbing lemon juice on his skin would render him invisible to videotape cameras. After all, lemon juice is used as invisible ink so, as long as he didn’t come near a heat source, he should have been completely invisible.

  1. I want to apologies if I blew up your re-blogging of my post. It was not my intent. WordPress.com, where we post, just offered a brand new service ( for relatively big bucks) that now allows for third party plug-ins and themes to be in play. As soon as I found out, last night, me being me, jumped all over it. I did not know that in doing so it would effect anything but my site. Again, I’m sorry… Painted Toes.
