Every time you use a car analogy…

…a kitten dies.
I really disrelish car analogies.
Especially in IT.
They are evil. And mostly useless.
Because people who have no grasp of the concept you are trying to explain to them will most likely not understand it with the “help” of a car analogy either but feel even more stupid and belittled!
It’s like saying “Let me break this down to kindergarten-level for you”.

So, think of the kittens!
