An Unfortunate Metaphor

This looks cool.

Almost like sending a bunch of children out into a bad neighbourhood and telling them to explore all the dark alleys they can find, and when they don’t return (or return somehow changed from when you saw them last), sending slightly larger ones, and then slightly larger ones again wearing kevlar, and finally grown men inside an armoured personnel carrier. When they don’t make it back, the panic button is pressed.
