Thanks for the suggestion.

So bad, that only the last clause explains your intent.

I disagree.  I've got things in 3D graphics that are trivial for me to talk
about.  I'm sure quite a number of people around here have the same level of
knowledge about Python.  I profit by asking "easy" questions in newsgroups,
it saves me time.  If it's a big waste of your time to answer, don't answer.
I'm not expecting thesis material from you, only what easily pours out of
your head.

Wild goose chases on websites generally consume more time even when they do
provide the answers.  Asking human beings "Hey, what about..." is much more
productive for a wide class of problems, if you can afford the latency of
the answers.  I only do the pain of looking everything up when I gotta know
the answer *right now*.

Telling me I'm lazy doesn't bother me.  I'm perfectly happy to tell you why
/ when you *should* be lazy.

20% of the world is real.
80% is gobbledygook we make up inside our own heads.
