Once upon a time, there was a man named Jord, who made the best cup of coffee in the neighborhood. He called the cup, "the #7". Every morning, his friends would come by to fellowship, but mostly, to have the coffee. No one ever saw him make the coffee or his measurements. They just saw the top-of-the line (Världshav Brand) coffee maker, holding the pot, over which they all salivated each day. Over time, one neighbor ("Clepto" we'll call him) became jealous and began to covet the coffee maker. One day, while Jord was away, Clepto broke in and stole the coffee maker.
Jord was down for several days after this, but eventually went out and got a new coffee maker. He had the Världshav for so long that the model was no longer made. I guess they "broke the mold" after that one. Many years passed, as well as a few different coffee makers, but Jord was never able to get that which he got out of the Världshav. Clepto, over time, was NEVER able to make the perfect cup of coffee while having the Världshav. Upset and disappointed, he finally donated the Världshav to Goodwill. From there, it was bought, used, and again donated, over and over. No one was able to get from the Världshav, the same results that Jord was able to achieve.
Almost 20 years passed, from the time Clepto stole from Jord, when Jord went to Goodwill to donate his latest disappointment. Normally, he'd just drive up, drop off, and roll out. On this particular day, he was compelled to go inside a browse around a bit. After about 7 minutes of looking around, he sees the Världshav that he lost almost a score ago. In disbelief, he examined it closely. YES!!! It was his!! It was priced at $10, but in his excitement, he paid $100!
Once home, Jord immediately cleaned the Världshav, measured everything out, and again, made the #7, the perfect cup of coffee. Peace, order, and happiness returned to his life. Once again, his friends and neighbors would come over to "fellowship" and........................
THEY LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER!!
