Discussion on: Explain Load Balancers Like I'm Five

rhymes profile image

You are five, you need constant attention when you're home from preschool.

You have two parents, one is busy dealing with your younger sibling, the other is giving you their full attention.

The busy parent will listen to you in a few moments, just right after your younger sibling has been put to bed.

Being this a short story I'm going to insert the following plot device: both parents cannot give their attention to you at the same time.

Have fun :D
