Explain it to me like I’m a Five-Year-Old

On the interview:

Interviewer: Explain recursive programming to me like I’m a five-year-old.
Interviewee: Right… Do you know where your mommy and daddy are?

Then again:

“I’ve taught immigration law literally to 3-year-olds and 4-year-olds. It takes a lot of time. It takes a lot of patience. They get it. It’s not the most efficient, but it can be done.”

Judge Jack Weil

Maybe toddlers in the US are different from the rest of the world?

Update: On the other hand, those toddlers expected to learn US immigration law aren’t American toddlers…

Update 2: Interesting how it’s economically feasible to have a judge spend, presumably hours, teaching a toddler immigration law… likely because it’s much cheaper than giving the kid proper representation and risk having it immigrate…
