Speed is easy to understand. I see a similar issue with space travel fans, 
who have trouble grasping how acceleration, not velocity, is the important 
factor in that domain. And when velocity is a factor, it's the vector, not 
the scalar, that counts. If only people got decent math educations....

Jitter and bloat aren't intuitive and need a lot more thinking and patience 
to understand. Perhaps we need a good animated cartoon to explain it.
