I came across this on another board, and couldn't help but be astonished how someone in a creative field would think that, say, it's harder to write books that are then translated into many languages than to write books which aren't. As if the author did the translation or something.

And if it's that easy to create megasellers by assigning a committee, I'm surprised more publishing houses don't do it.
