LOL I always wanted to start a thread with that title...
Anyhow - I have a big problem. I need a way to explain Bandwidth - Throughput to Morons. I'm looking for pictures or analogies.
Small words, of course as the audience is comprised of Corporate Executives with attention spans of a small child.

T = S / P
Even this is too much - they won't understand. http://learn-networking.com/network-...and-throughput
So to sum up. Anyone have any pictures or analogies that correctly explain bandwidth? Please stay away from Latency and the different types of Throughput.
