What do you mean by "find everything"? He's good and finding information? He knows how to find his way around a geography/location? He can find lost keys? All of the above?

Managing hospital beds isn't a one-time event like a war or battle, and there are no victors. We're talking about a suboptimal solution to an ongoing process, so I don't think Pyrrhic victory really works well here.

comment What is the term for when you become more aware of something?
@ermanen - I see no such text when I go to: itre.cis.upenn.edu/~myl/languagelog/archives/002386.html . I see a blog post entitled "JUST BETWEEN DR. LANGUAGE AND I".

I'll concede, but FYI, neither the word "Baader" nor "Meinhoff" appears in the article listed in your comment above when you do a text search.

OK, searching with "Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon" with quotes gives more results that I didn't see before. I'm a little less skeptical now. :-)
