There are things about myself that I am completely sure of. One is that I have very little common sense, so I have to understand something thoroughly before I attempt it. If you assume I know what I am doing without explaining it to me, you are horribly mistaken and things could get dangerous.

To thoroughly understand, however, I need time to think. Once I have everything set straight in my head, I am fine. But if I do not get this time, and you are rushing me, and I have no idea what to do, MAYBE THAT'S WHY THINGS WENT HORRIBLY WRONG.
