//Discussing work involved with two methods of removing vomit from a conic vase (by scooping off the top, and by using a hose extended to the bottom to suck). Bendeguz: But why would you ever want to use a hose if in real life it would be more work? Mike: It's harder to build a machine that scoops than it is to make a hose. Bendeguz: You could just use a hose for the top layer, and keep lowering it. Mike: Maybe, but I have learned in POE that it does not take much work for a machine to suck.
Klein: If it's not about the vomit, I'm not interested.
Clay: You know what it's called when you just start writing without doing a prewrite first? It's called vomiting onto the page.
Stein: "That is an infinitely thin slice of vomit." //part of an example figuring out how much work was needed to suck have a tank of vomit out the top
