舟(zhou) is boat in Chinese. Does it look like a boat?  Do the two dots represent two fishermen who are rowing two paddles which the horizon stroke (一)shapes like!  Then what is the first thing on the top the character? Is it used to control the direction of the movement movement of the boat?

The most useful knowledge and skill that we are lack of is that of about human!
