Actually, the conductor has resistance too, so the current would still be divided between the resistor and the conductor and the current through the conductor would be slightly less than if the resistor wasn't there at all. Resistance is never futile. Surrender is futile.
If puns were sausages, this would be the wurst.

"We were wrong, terribly wrong. (We) should not have tried to fight a guerrilla war with conventional military tactics against a foe willing to absorb enormous casualties...in a country lacking the fundamental political stability necessary to conduct effective military and pacification operations. It could not be done and it was not done."

Seems pretty zany...
What's easier to believe: that a guy was born without sex in the manner of several Greek demigods and grew up to be able to transmute liquids and alter his body density yet couldn't escape government execution, or that three freemasons in a vehicle made with aluminum foil in an era before digital technology escaped our atmosphere, landing on the moon, broadcasted from there, and then flew back without burning up?

Well if the resistance is significant enough the effect would be negligible and it would be futile; you wouldn't take it into account when doing your calculations...
