I don't really have a problem with your seeking help, but I'd like to point
out that part of what you are supposed to learn in doing a research proposal is
how to search the literature and find non-foolhardy proposals that haven't al-
ready been done.  Computerized lit. searches have made this task much easier
than it once was.
