 the meaning?
 Don’t present.

 One simple point? Remove everything else.
  • 43. Well, some are 
 just hopeless.
  • 44. Do you remember the rule: 7 lines per slide or less 7 words per line or less? Well, it is just plain stupid If you follow this “rule” You get a slide like this Ditch stupid “rules”
