I guess if you want something to look realistic you will need some degree of research and how much depends on you.
One way to look at it you will broaden your knowledge on what ever you research which is just an added bonus.
Its about the law.
Sometimes it seems odd going through loads of info, half of which isn't helpful. Sometimes i know exactly what i need, other times i'm looking for a muse.
When does it get redundant? I know research helps but where do you draw the between looking for something to run with and looking for answers ?
