Kevin, I wonder how many times you have been under pressure to come up
with an answer, when your overly hyper supervisor doesn't understand
that you don't have the answer at you fingertips.
When I was in law school, I took a course in legal research. The final
examination consisted of a three page fact pattern, with one question.
"What is the first book you would consult in researching this problem
and why?" I answered, "the telephone book to find out who had similar
problems to save hours of research." I got an A+ for the answer.
