bonus tip

When you don't get the answer you want, try asking your question from a different angle.


  1. You remember that episode of The Simpsons in which Homer becomes a fortune cookie writer alongside Woody Allen?

    Just asking for no particular reason...none whatsoever. ;-)

  2. hmm, actually no. I haven't seen them all, particularly later seasons, and I think I would recall a Woody Allen guest star ep. I can guess the gist though.

    My thought for this tip was more to do with realizing when you're not really asking the question you want answered. It's surprising how often it comes up...mostly out of some vague evasiveness.

    The theory is if you answer this question, then I'll know the answer to this other q, but it's not always true.
