*sigh* Once again… Because it doesn't make any sense to go to great effort working on .0004% of the problem, if that turns out to be the case. That's basic problem solving. Perhaps you've heard of Pareto charts and their common uses?

Your example does not address the point. If your house builder adds a $10billion missle defense system to protect the house from meteor strikes but the earthquake still levels it, are you going to congratulate him and say it was money well spent? Of course not, because he was working on the wrong problem.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
