Bob, a dairy farm owner, was unhappy. He owned many cows but could not milk them efficiently. Business was good, though.

One morning, his neighbor, an owner of fodder factory, came and told him that he had found a way to efficiently milk the cows by letting them sleep for 24 hours and then milking them. Bob ran towards his farm, shouting "big cow, big cow"...

Bob and his neighbor were very happy. Bob got more cows to earn more profit. Few months passed.

One fine morning, his neighbor came and told him that he had found a way to milk the cows round the clock, without going through 24 hours of sleep period - by giving a rapid burst of low voltage electric shocks to cows. Bob ran towards his farm, shouting "real-time big cow, real-time big cow"...

Now we have big cows, real-time big cows and fodder factories everywhere.
