@Danu Oh yes, but it seems that most everyone has to learn this lesson the hard way. Who was it who cracked the line about being able to fit a [large animal, maybe an elephant?] with five parameters?
Ah ... found it. John von Neumann. As quoted here.
The line was "With four parameters I can fit an elephant, and with five I can make him wiggle his trunk.".
