Nice coup, Frosty. The approved method is to study the recommended reading and regurgitate it back in a way that's disguised enough not to be considered plagiarism.
I couldn't face the boredom so I preferred your approach - think about it and then hunt references, knowing that I you thought of something, chances were Google would tell me about 871,342 who thought of it earlier :)
Cool (or disturbing) that you were channelling your professor :)
