"Imagine for a second that you have just stepped on a bug.  What would you do?  You would do nothing.  But Hieronymus did something, and that's why he's world-renowned while you're sitting at home with your nose in this book, reading about his exploits."  Yes, Hieronymus knew all there was to know.  When he stepped on a bug, he realized that it had a kind of squishiness.  So, he set out to categorize different levels of squishiness.  He stepped on a lot of bugs!  But then he found something that he may just never be able to figure out.  A single hair is found and it doesn't match any of the 36 million hairs in his collection.  Can he possibly find out where the hair came from?  Will he remain the most renowned scholar in the world?
