Why oh why are any subjects complicated? What is the point of sharing if someone doesn't understand what you are saying? Is it to reach a select few, your like kind, who speaks scientific, medical, legal or accounting jargons? Why not speak regular, let it reach whoever is interested and even invite questions or further information?


                  E=MC 2 or                                                                          Let's have some fun!



I have seen this approach to difficulty in certain books making them unreadable. Try reading tax codes, legal rules, cases or rulings, medical journals and the nuisance of them all CONTRACTS, disclaimers, waivers and warning labels. What it effectively does is keep the majority of people out of these loops. Why? 


Why are these frightening, unwelcoming & filled with confusion, double talk & tricky data? Yes, we have all heard it is for our own benefit NOT! Why invoke "deer in the headlights? Why use up a person's deodorant? Where is the fun, adventure type beckoning to learn, explore & solve?

SMALL PRINT...what is the point?

Notice the subtle effort to read the whole above caption? Why require the extra effort? Small print is compliance with laws we know nothing about but work against a person in some future event should it be challenged. We warned you! How far are we willing to go? Should everything be shrunk down? Up? What?


All this serves to hide from a person's common sense what that person needs to know but not in a way where the person continues to still not know. That is a set-up or a trap of some sort. Black & white is not justice but does choose a side


1. The knee bone is connected to the thigh bone that is connected to the ankle bone at one end while it is also connected to the core body that is connected to tissues, muscles & organs at the other end this we all know. Then what is with all the complicated medical names, explanations & symptom talk? The patella & Femur protrude to the pelvic while travelling the abdominal panniculus?

2. Don't spit on the sidewalk is clear enough unless it is worded that any saliva, fluid ejected from the mouth, nose or any external orifice, intentional or accidental is prohibited regardless of extenuating or outside sources of interference.

3. If you don't report income made, of which employers, state agencies & income sources document and report, you will be liable for any monies due in the event of an audit plus penalty & interest is clear enough. Instead, it reads, income from any number of selected sources, known or not shall be documented according to subscribed rules as noted in volume 17 of the United States Tax code 2.0 revised

4. Broker A, tells Broker B that Broker C's client has not been vetted. Broker A denies knowing but is held accountable for Broker C's client misinformation according to the Business & professions code, Multiple listing services & all rules of National, state & local Board of Realtors claiming breach of fiduciary. Why not Broker A asks any potential buyer, with agent or not, if they are prequalified & have proof of funds etc.?

5. The exam consists or 100 multiple choice answers where only one out of the four answers offered is correct with the other answers being relevant but not correct. Picking the best answer will not be deemed the right answer. Instead say: This exam will have questions with up to four possible & relevant answers. Pick the answer that best addresses the question.

6. A scientist finds an ancient legasaurus susceptimus dissuessal and needs additional funding to further identify the sporassic & statistical arid regional site of the dwelling isotopic finding. Why not just report a dinosaur bone was found and further digging is expected. Please send in a donation to support this endeavor.


Here's where it gets insulting is when people who have memorized these dictated ways accuse others of being ignorant. The fact is that even professionals in their chosen fields wish that things were made simpler for everyone's sake. The work will still get done & invite further discoveries, adventures & meaningful discussions

KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID or KISS is designed to keep everything as simple as it can be if you want quality interaction and user interface & intimacy with follow-up of all involved parties...UH OH...Here we go again. KEEP IT SIMPLE please!  LOL

Hi Richie- you're singing my song!!! I might suggest that the reason for the gibberish is so that attorneys who write all of this will feel like their high fees have been justified. But of course, it's just a suggestion.

Amen to this, Richie. I never cease to be amazed by how often people complicate things and as the Brits say "get all caught up in their knickers" as a result.
