And we all do things differently. Sometimes the question indicates that
someone is taking an unnecessarily difficult path. Sometimes nobody
knows the answer, and rather than just ignore the questioner, we chip

spends his life doing things that nobody else has done, and then gets
ratty because nobody can answer his questions.
