In the last post, commenter AWP helped me realize that the marshmallow mountain analogy could be improved upon, since one person eating a marshmallow prevented another person from eating that same marshmallow. But the road cannot be subdivided as simply. Yes, a nit-picky implication of the vagueness of the term “good”, but I want to communicate as well as I can.
So, I plan to revise the article to use the analogy of a really, really big lollipop. It’s a significant enough revision that I think it deserves mentioning. Let me know if you think of a better analogy.
