Notes to readers

I've written these primers with the aim of providing the most relevant information for the average person. Meaning, I've left out the details that aren't particularly important to you. You can always read lengthier articles elsewhere online if you want the nitty-gritty. Also, note that I don't use caveats like "might", "may", and "sometimes" in cases where what I've written applies in most circumstances. This means that there might be exceptions that apply in your situation.
