I suspect it is your military training that sets you two apart from everybody else in the post. So if somebody wanted to make my point with you two guys, they would have to understand intimately how you guys think and use proper metaphors. I’m also realizing how many metaphors are militarized. Perhaps the distinction between precision and accuracy (or rather, the dangers of imprecision vs inaccuracy, which is my highlight here) is better served by demilitarized metaphors. Perhaps chemistry, diffusion, etc.

England and America likes to mix up business with culture with religion with architecture with language and then skip out on the contracts.
At least China holds to contracts.. for better or worse.
I mean they REALLY stick to contracts. I don’t know any other nation that does 99 year contracts. But they do. and when it’s time to pay up… well, you better pay up.
  •  I’m still looking for a better metaphor than target shooting for this.
    I like this one better than the other one I was using because it illustrates TRUENESS which is important in many things that _aren’t_ shooting actual targets.
    I saw one with basketballs I’ll investigate further but I’m starting to see these target illustrations aren’t as true as they ought to be as there’s much bias when it comes to real life target shooting vs using it as a metaphor.
