It is not a 9 year old's construct though. It's a construct created by a parent. That was then re-hashed by the 9 year old. Did I read it wrong ? Milkshakes are good :)--On Thu, Oct 8, 2015 at 1:11 PM, brent timothy saner <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

you're criticizing *a 9 year old's* analogy because it's not a 1:1
allegory of real-world?
you also apparently missed the "Pretend ice cream stores gave away free
milkshakes.". the model is internally consistent and a good summation
model of the issue at hand. *which is exactly what an analogy is
supposed to do*- it introduces the core
concept/issue/conundrum/situation/what have you in a broken down and
i think you need a milkshake.
