Tip #3: Read History
If you're interested in History, and especially Pre-History, your perspective is pretty long and you know that things change.
HRM Queen Margrethe II of Denmark (this is not a *direct* quote, see bottom)
So, this is tip #3 for the strange period that we're in right now: Read History!
Still, history is - by far - the largest subject we know of. If you feel that you don't really have time for that you may still be equally well served reading Lore and Fairytales. Seriously. Here's a very short one:
Two flies sat at the back of a waggon, winding hastily down a dusty dirt road. One said to another "Look at all that dust the two of us are creating!"
Allegedly: H.C. Andersen - own translation, from memory.
Note: The quote above is my own translation from Danish. Her Royal Majesty gave an interview to the Danish newspaper "Politiken" which I unfortunately can't read as the paper version is sold out and the online version is "subscribers only". So, I read the above at a secondary source, "DR.dk", that had an abstract (in Danish). Some re-phrasing may have taken place.
