:eek: I'm a bit surprised by this one too. Maybe my dad's generation or so might have had that reflex. (Although, I have to admit my first reflex might be "East or West?" I don't think that's quite...

True. The trick I learned when I was very little was to add a tiny bit of vinegar. (I don't even remember how old I was when I started using this recipe. About six or seven.) But I learned very...

I would think that the moment you order (and especially eat) something at a restaurant you've entered a contract to pay for it. Obviously that's not always how it works out but you are obligated to...

That's the best idea so far. Only, given how the UK is only connected to France at that one point, they should just build a water way between, a huge channel. The only place to get in would be by...

Be careful. If you make any criticism of the article, some here will see it as having "a personal investment in" Flat-Earther ideology.

I read the whole post. I don't see why you would see that as the Dunning-Kruger effect. What do you think Dunning and Kruger found in their research that you observed in the people you met?
