Don't be so pessimistic. They may or they may not.
I had a friend that was a gold minor that told me an interesting thing. He
asked me what I thought was the most useful tool for his profession.
You might think, mercury, or that machine for separating out the gold, but
he told me it was a simple spoon.
Here's how he used it. He would go to areas where other minors where
operating (not claims, just others out in the mountains hunting.)
He knew from the contour of the land where gold was likely to be found, but
then so did all the other minors.
He'd find someplace where another minor had spent all day shoveling and
picking a pile of dirt.
He'd find the place where the other minor had given up because the rock came
together too hard.
He'd get out his spoon and dig the other six inches or so and pull out a
Then he'd do it again where some other minor had spent a day or two digging.
My point; the difference between greatness and just another big pile is that
last six inches.
This was a great article:

stars someday. I'm sure they listen.
I've got to get to work now, but I do want to respond to the other comments
when I get home. Thanks all...
