Another birth control recall
(Yahoo, ABC News)
Less than a month after Pfizer recalled almost 1 million packages of bad birth control pills, Glenmark Generics recalled its version of the pill because of a packaging error that landed the pills in the wrong order. Seven lots of norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol tablets were distributed to US pharmacies last year. Select of the packets were rotated 180 degrees, which reversed the weekly tablet orientation. Women who have the pills are being asked to return them because they could be left without enough contraception and at a risk for pregnancy. [Yahoo]

THIS EXPLAINS SO MUCH. Research confirms.... incompetent are deprived of the ability to recognize their own incompetence
To put it bluntly, dumb people are too dumb to know it. Also, unfunny people don't have a good enough sense of humor to know they're not funny. It's not optimism, but it's actually a total lack of expertise that makes people unable to recognize they're wrong. Even when researchers offered study participants a $100 reward if they could rate themselves accurately, they couldn't. Experts think that people's inability to know their own knowledge is because of "many of society's ills, including climate change denialism." People don't have training in science, so they might misunderstand the science. But because they don't have the knowledge to evaluate it, they don't realize how off their evaluations might be.
