An Analogy Re: An impossible job

I often point out that, whereas I can spend ages looking for a leak in a boat and not find it, when I put the boat in water the water finds the leak immediately. Open source makes the fight more evenly matched by allowing many more people to look for the leak. (Yes, I know that this helps the hackers too, but I reckon it improves the ratio of effort, hackers vs debuggers)
