Expanding on the Tale

Well, the whole "Mr. Jones" thing was supposed to be a sort of thought experiment, but I guess it's not much of an experiment if only two people participate.

I was curious what kind of thoughts would emerge, mixing in a bit of fantasy with a bit of reality. Unsurprisingly, guys like Scott Adams are more successful at this kind of thing when they do it.

There were a lot of details that would have made the entire thing closer to the reality it was meant to represent, but just wouldn't have meshed well with the analogy in general.
