Most things we buy come with some kind of instruction. Even food tells us that a can of soup is two servings. Really, do you know anyone who can make a can of soup last for 2 meals?
The first few computers we bought, had a manual a mile long. The last one I bought have a fold out with lots of pictures and little else. It seems that it is no longer possible to get much instuction with anything we buy but, it might be available on line.
And then, there are babies. They come with absolutely nothing at all. Naked, and wet is our first glimpse of them and not once, has a How To manual come with any of them. We are human, we need manuals. we are not as DIY as we like to think. It is true that even if babies came with manuals, some would not take the time to read, no less execute what they read. While we can get bogged down with information sometimes, a little bit is helpful. Sometimes a bit more, is needed.
Was looking for a recipe yesterday and took time to check through 4 pages of comments. We are talking a three ingredient recipe. In those 4 pages were every imaginable variations that one could imagine. We took something that was simple, good and easy and made it complicated, unhealthy and confusing. That is what we humans do.
Right to the point, concise. Not too much or not enough, just like the Three Little bears, just right...
