The "simple" concept--I noticed this erroneously applied to food too. Yesterday I saw a garden show on TV that had a cooking segment. The host was going on about how simple it turned out to be to make asparagus tempura--he had always thought it was so hard, but it was so simple, etc. Well, you should have seen this recipe--there were all these steps and they have to be done in a certain time frame, and the tempura has to be eaten very fresh out of the fryer, so you have to make it after your guests arrive, and the oil has to be a specific temperature, etc. etc. I could not believe this guy actually used the word "simple" to describe it. He could have said a whole lot of other things to describe it that are true, but simple? No way.
