Failure of Dunning-Kruger to Replicate Was Likely a Dunning-Kruger Incident

The experimenter was too stupid to properly repeat Dunning and Kruger's steps, but also too stupid to realize they fucked up.

The basic finding is that, roughly speaking, the bottom 2/3 are overconfident, and the top 1/3 are less confident than warranted. This is obviously true. If science says this is wrong, then too bad for science. Maybe work out if eggs are cancer-fighting or cancer-causing, and then perhaps you'll have the credibility to challenge the obvious on this issue.

Dunning-Kruger not realizing they were not good enough at explaining Dunning-Kruger was a Dunning-Kruger.
