Delayed gratification - Mature Marshmallow test

edited January 27 in New Ideas
I'm sure you are all familiar with the Marshmallow Test for children.  Those children who can "pass" the test show higher probability of success later in life.  

Now, for your entertainment, click below to see the tongue-in-cheek adult version.

    Why is this so funny?  It's because it is true.  

    We have become a culture that expects instant gratification all the time.  I am forever thankful that my parents did not raise me that way even though it is easy to become influenced by today's culture.  My parents grew up during the great depression so they learned patience the hard way.

    In my youth I wrote poetry. Alas, I fear my marshmallow metaphor for SSDR V1.4 might have been too subtle. ;-)

    How about a test where you are given an F6.7K. If you just look at it and don't put it on the air for an hour, you get another one...
