In life, you have to make sure you’re asking the right question.
1+1=2. Why? One of what? Plus one of what else? In what circumstance are these things being put together? 1 snake plus 1 rat equals 0 in my book. 1 male rabbit and 1 female rabbit equals 12 babies. 1 bomb + 1 crowded location equals dozens/hundreds dead. Ask Questions!! Don’t believe something because it was taught to you that way or it’s always been that way.
Become an independent thinker. For everything told to you there are a lot of variables. Most things are subjective.
