Back in 1992 or so I saw a post in usenet by some tech support people that said that in about 10 years most people with computers would believe any stupid goddamn thing you told them about them. It came true.

sometimes when ppl are desperate to accomplish things, they feel as though some kind of compulsive event that takes place in the process is the catalyst for sucess. Like when I was trying to start my car during the snow season I pressed the power lock switch and it cranked. No way to see if that did it until the next dead battery event. I could rant and rave that this was the trick.
