I have had quite a few additions of late where the name is either so common, or I have not been able to find a link or context, so have taken the coward's way out and selected "dump it in IMDb's lap".

I'm curious though - what actually happens when i pick that option? Is it assigned to a person who basically just does what I could have done (looks to see if any of the potential people have worked with others on the film before; if they have worked in the same city doing the same job; etc etc) or is there an automated review that basically does the same thing.

I of course try to find out myself by looking for common work etc, but it isn't always possible...so, what happens when i cop out and dump it on IMDb?

Under these circumstances, I prefer this very safe for work video:
8 Hour Nature Sound Relaxation-Soothing Forest Birds Singing-Relaxing Sleep Sounds-Without Music
This is one of a series of videos designed for various needs: as a calming sound to play in the background while studying or as a soothing sound to play while you sleep.

I need that right now.  The neighbors, obviously "on" something, have been yelling at each other (not arguing, just yelling everything they say), though they're sitting in a small room together...I'm picturing them having been up all night "snorting" someting...this will mask the din of their odd discussion!
