I don't have a defensive attitude.  Anyone is free to use whatever they want.  I for one don't even use the HEMS Tool.  Yes, you're probably right that some resources can probably be looked at and interpreted quite quickly.  All I'm saying is in my experience, if I have to sit there and look at several charts to determine if I should go, then typically there's something lurking out there that's caught my attention.  It's these items that make me pause and say, "I'm taking too long to convince myself thru these charts to take the flight."  

It won't catch up to me, as you inferred.  That's because it's already caught up with me in the past by taking to long to decide on going (longer than 30 seconds with simple charts) and actually launching...and having to turn around.  There are those times when I find myself beginning to take too long; opening up seldom used progs, putting the comm. center on hold, walking to the window to seperate the shades and peer outside, etc.  This is my personal recipe for taking too much time.  I've been doing this way too many years to know that making a weather decision to launch is much easier and should be instinctive and quick.

Again, no rocket science here.  KISS folks, it's that easy.
