I agree. A lot of the things I had a hard time understanding in Python I got from JavaScript, and vice versa. Because for most languages, they all accomplish the same goal.

But like you said, in small doses. I've seen a lot of people, myself included, waste countless amounts of time on something they aren't interested in. And simply because they didn't know what they were getting into.
