Science Nerd Schools Tumblr User on Plague and Veganism

This thread was in response to this news of a couple in Mongolia who ate raw Marmot organs and subsequently died of Plague. The story itself is pretty tragic, but where i gets interesting is this tumblr user shooting down everyone's knee-jerk reactions to the headline without actually reading the thing. In very tumblr fashion, the thread turned into a conversation about the realities of veganism, sort of like this tumblr post that called out vegans for not eating honey.

Scientists and technicians go through a lot of time and effort in order to make their reports sound as science-y and official as possible. However, that doesn't undo the fact that people screw up every day. What's left is people trying to come up with official sounding statements for "I dunno, I screwed up man." Chalk it up to tumblr to overcomplicate things. Check this out for a Tumblr report on how cute humans are.

The Dunning-Kruger Effect is the relatively simple observation that people lacking in knowledge on a certain subject will overestimate their own abilities related to that subject. Or rather, stupid people aren't smart enough to know they're dumb. Basically, the less you know, the more you think you know. This can have real problems when it comes to things like public health and representative democracy. 

They say it effects everybody, so who knows how much we just glossed over writing this description.
