So, this guy walks into a doctor's office and says, "I need to
talk to you about this hangnail..." and the doctor listens seriously
and tries to offer some constructive but trivial advice. Then the
guy says, "Yeah, but the real reason I came to you was because
of my brain tumor..."
Moral: Don't be surprised if you don't get useful help when the
people who are trying to help you are working with a partial view
of your problem.
