>... On Behalf Of BillK

>... If you found the document under a broken down car, covered in oily
fingerprints, then you might guess it had something to do with car repair.

That's the pessimist's view BillK.  If the oily document is found beneath a
broken down car, then the information found therein was insufficient to
allow the person whose fingerprints were found to repair the conveyance.  In
that sense the document was useless or unsuccessful.  

Consider now the point of view of one who views BillW's half glass as full:
the oily document is so interesting, the reader was focused on that instead
of keeping the family car in good repair.  When resulting breakdown
occurred, she was so engrossed in the study of that document, that she
couldn't even put it down long enough to fix the car, so she had the reading
material in one oily hand, while simultaneously attempting to repair the
conveyance with the other.  So exciting were the materials she fainted, at
which time the book fell from her limp hand, the paramedics took her away to
the local hospital, the car remained in disrepair and the reading material
on the ground.  

That must be a very interesting book.
