OCCAM'S RAZOR

I had a lively discussion with a co-worker the other day. We were discussing the process to tackle a problem. They stated something about keeping it simple. I mentioned Occam’s Razor. After getting a puzzled look on their face I explained the principle of Occam’s razor. That when you have two competing theories that the simpler one is the best choice.

After receiving looks of confidence and amazement from the team I felt bad. I didn’t want to confess that I learned about this theory from Lisa Simpson.

LOL!! Does it really matter where we learn things? Charlie's Angels taught me how to flip my hair, pull out my gun and start running after the bad guy--all in one fluid motion!

Is it wrong to admit that I learned what Occam's Razor is from you?
