To over-engineering an explanation when a simple explanation would suffice. Usually with good intentions but has the effect of utterly confusing the recipient or boring them to tears.
Question from mom: What was the problem with the Roku?
Engineersplain: I needed to edit iptables to forward external TDP ports 80 and 443 to the Roku. I also needed to forward UDP port 53. Once that was done I restarted iptables and IP traffic was able ingress/egress from the Roku to the Internet and vice versa.
