This is probably my biggest pet peeve of search engines -- paying no
attention whatsoever to what the user has explicitly asked for --
instead assumes, assumes, assumes. Do you really believe the 3 instances
of 'truffle' above are the same?
Words are going to insist on their autonomy, especially in the face of
old-school demands for referential or thematic unity:
"All you never saw (assumptions)" -->
Making way before way = know-how / knowledge / notsheep
