It has occurred to me that my original Heterodoxy post has a problem: it's targeted primarily at people who already somewhat know what they're doing. Heck, it's pretty much a post to tell myself to be less silly.

So here is a bit of presumably even less controversial (should I rename this series "Orthodoxy"?) advice to people who are either starting out or have managed to avoid learning for a long time.  (…)

Two men set off travelling together.

They bought provisions for the road, one bread and cheese, the other fish.

After having walked for a while, the one who had bought the bread asked the other: "Your people eat a lot of fish. Why do you eat so much fish?"

"Tēpun nyajīyam nyisehmēšō tollyin nyāššeš, iš tōgō tēpui yōrvandō vajīm."

If you eat fish, you will become smarter. That is why we eat so much fish.
