perception of magnitude

January 12th, 2006

Or simply: "a little" vs "a lot". It's amazing how the perception of magnitude changes from one instance to another. Half a cup of coffee is not a lot of coffee. To drink. But it's a lot of coffee to spill on your desk and speaker and computer. Good thing the case is metal and doesn't leak. Ugh, now I have a sticky desk. :lazy:
