Fandango’s Provocative Question (18 November 2020)

For today’s Provocative Question, Fandango asks:

Do you think it’s better to have a broad knowledge base or a deep knowledge base?

hahaha, that word better hides a multitude of sins.

If you’re a nuclear scientist, and you want to make a bomb, then it probably helps if you have some quite specific knowledge.

On the other hand, if you’re a nuclear scientist whose home has a leaky tap, then you’d better know how to change a washer otherwise you’re not gonna sleep tonight!

So, my answer? It depends, of course! How long is a piece of string?

Next, please

for Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 18 November 2020, trite.

A man got a job as a hack,
Left the editor taken aback,
When instructed to write,
All he wrote was pure trite,
So the next thing he got was the sack!

I very nearly mistyped the prompt word, there.
