The Tale of the Squeakers
Once, playing Call of Duty, I came across a player talking to squeakers. One by one he would soothe them, and quieten their squeaking. I was struck by the apparent futility of the task. "There are thousands of them," I said. "You can't possibly hope to make a difference."; As he leaned forward and whispered gently into his mic, another squeaker stopped shouting. "I made a difference to that one," he replied.
