Word of the Day: Certainly made me think!

Occam's razor

noun
Meaning
: a scientific and philosophic rule that entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily which is interpreted as requiring that the simplest of competing theories be preferred to the more complex or that explanations of unknown phenomena be sought first in terms of known quantities.

Then I thought about it, and ended up translating it. So....
IN OTHER WORDS:
KEEP IT SIMPLE
