comment Explaining programming to a child
Such an example was given on stackoverflow.com a while back, which I used to great success. Get a jar of jam, knife, and a loaf of sliced bread, and ask them to tell you how to make a sandwich. So many opportunities for mis-interpreting them. eg.g "Put the jam on the bread" = picking up the entire jar and putting it on the slice; "twist the lid" = twist the lid... without holding the jar (so the whole thing twists), etc.
