The Reason for Ridiculous Rules
I once saw a “No Diving” sign on top of a cruise ship. I thought that the rule on the sign seemed ridiculous because most people would not attempt a dive at such a dangerous height. Then I realized that most people doesn’t include ALL people and someone likely severely injured themselves by diving from that very spot. Rules are boundaries based on past experiences. Rules often represent a lesson learned from a past experience. To remove a rule because it’s inconvenient willfully unlearns a painful lesson that will likely be repeated.
