At least that's what they say. And they are right. If you do ask, the answer can be either yes or no. If you do not ask, the answer by default is no. Ask even if the potential for failure is 99%...if you ask, you still have a better chance of getting the answer "yes" than without asking. And if they say no, it's normal.

I asked for a wireless password of this bar, Akathor, from my waitress, he said probably not, but I can ask the boss who's currently in the bar. I went to the bar about 15 minutes later, then there were three people, go figure. Well, one way or another, I asked, all three guys heard, one of them said he didn't even know they have wireless available, he thought it was just for their inner usage. And he didn't really know the password. They were not too fond of finding it out either. But...like I said, one way or another, better to ask than not to ask. Failure is sure only in case of NOT asking or not doing something, not taking action.

Some people, including me, would like to think anything is possible. Of course, then we need to bring out things that are not. For example, you can't become a good enough swimmer in a month to win the Olympics. But to tell you the truth, even this is more possible if you at least give it a shot than if you don give it a shot. Even if the chances of succeeding are 0.1% then...it's way above (well, a million times?) winning a national lottery.

And sometimes, if you ask but get no results, it might be a good idea to ask again at some point....
