When I'm not given adequate information I'm forced to guess the rest,
unlike you telepaths who can pluck the missing information out of a
passing bystander's mind. :P Or, at least, pluck the *fact* that you
need more information and some idea of what it is out of someone's
mind and then formulate a Google search query.
(Weirdly enough I've gotten into an argument in a newsgroup recently
over Google searches. Some of the people there seem to think Google
is a magical oracle, and that even if you don't know enough to
formulate a likely query to find something, or even if you don't know
there's even something to find, Google will just seize control of
your Web browser and it will just pop up on a site with the
information you didn't even know you were missing. I, of course, know
that Google is mere technology and you can't use it to find what you
aren't even looking for, or what you are when you don't know enough
key words to make a narrow enough query that the answer won't be
buried a million hits down into the list. It seems that an unhealthy
reverence for Google and an exaggerated expectation of what people
will be able to achieve with it is becoming a widespread problem on
the net these days...)
