Making big decisions.

I was just reading Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman. It's a very entertaining book full of Feynman's memoirs. In a few different stories he describes how amazed he is that some "great man" can make enormously important decisions in small time frames, after weighing all available options. Feynman states how he himself can not decide anything in a short amount of time, let alone something as important as how to handle an atomic bomb.

Although I don't suffer from the genius that Feynman does, I could definitely relate to his problem of making decisions. It always seems like there is more to be considered to make an informed decision. This appears to be especially true today, in the clichéd "information age." You could spend months discovering tidbits of information about any given topic on the internet. How do you know when to stop? I don't.

Eli really does have this problem. Perhaps ( like the rain and the sun in Williamette ) the immense time spent learning on the web makes the small portion of his time with humans all the more enjoyable.
