Operating Instructions Spoil the Fun

June 21, 2012


It is a universal truth that most people who confront some kind of device or machine with which they must come to terms do not even consider the helpful instruction manual.  Why is this?  Practitioners will say that these things just make dealing with the inner workings and operation more confusing.  But isn’t the truth […]

Presidents on Vacation – Obamas Break New Ground

August 6, 2010
