OTOH, if you're a ballet dancer and you know something about auto
mechanics, it's a lot easier to avoid getting taken by an unscrupulous
repair shop. And a mechanic might enjoy an evening at the ballet more by
knowing something about it.

There is a difference between "not a requirement to know" and "shouldn't
know."
