Default Analogy

It's been a boring saturday afternoon so far..
I figured I'd just bother you all with an analogy I used a while back to explain the cracking scene to someone.


Imagine this. There is a long straight path that will get you home relatively fast. It is doubtful you will get there this way though, because you will get hungry and there is no food on the path.
Beside the path is a jungle. It is full of food, but it takes longer to reach your home through there.
There are three kinds of people..
1) People who try to make it across the path by running and hoping to reach their safe home before they run out of food.
2) People who take a first trip through the jungle, which gives them enough food to take the straight path a lot of times after that. (they occasionally quickly skid on and off the path when they run out)
3) People who, at one point through the jungle, said : "Damn, its nicer in here anyway. I'll build a treehouse."

1 are the people that come in and out of the scene to get a single crack
2 are the crackers that make up most of the scene
3 are the reversers
"It's people like this that make you realize how little you've accomplished. It is a sobering thought, for instance, that when Mozart was my age, he had been dead for two years." - Tom Lehrer
