Problem: I have a square peg and a round hole. Peg must fit in hole.
Solution1: Round off the edges until it fits the desired hole. Solution2: Make the round hole a square.
People's Perception1: Why didn't you just make both a triangle? Because clearly you're stupid.
People's Perception2: Obviously you are a moron - rounding edges or making the hole different doesn't change the fact that they didn't fit together in the first place.
