It shows a side of luck and the long time worker/camper/attendee getting nothing even tho they have put in all the extra effort. All you are foing is showing how poorly you understand what an analogy is.
Anyone can understand what an analogy is, his was simply just bad and stupid for comparing the real world with a virtual world. There was no relatable comparison there and anyone with a good understanding could see that.
Is this all you people do on a daily basis for the past few years? Come on the forums and start idiotic arguments? Lmao
The comparison wasn't about a virtual world. It was about a specific situation. I'm not sure why you don't understand that. You can have analogies using a train and a walrus. Neither have anything to do with each other. You could have an analogy using a trash can and mickey mouse. Neither have anything to do with each other. As long as the SPECIFIC situation your using for your analogy works, then the analogy works.
Children's books, fairy tales, and mythology is full of analogies involving non human entities. No one says "what a stupid analogy because they used a stuffed animal" in a kids book even though a stuffed animal has nothing to do with a person.
If you don't believe me, go ask your English teacher. But take him or her that specific situation. I have a feeling that because it's Aileron, it doesn't matter what he says, you're not going to like it and refuse it as truth even if it is. He could say 2+2 is 4 and you'd argue with him just to be right.
