What is best way to do research? Dis true story:
Three birds were assigned to do research papers: a tern, a stork and an ostrich.
The ostrich immediately stuck its head in the sand and thought whatever things it wanted to think, ignoring the world around it.
The stork walked out into the water and ate fish. Anything that wasn't a fish it wasn't interested in. As far as the stork was concerned, if you weren't a fish-eater you weren't a real bird. It was very firm in that opinion.
The tern was different. It traveled all about, looking all around, examining everything it saw. It walked on the ground with its long legs, then took to the sky so it could get a broader view.
Eventually the tern landed in a patch of some very yummy-looking 5-leafed plants. After 15 minutes had passed the bird concluded that research papers really aren't important at all.
The moral of the story:
When doing research, let no tern remain un-stoned.
