If you had to repeatedly do something painful and unfortunate seven times — how would you want to meter that experience?
Would you want to take it all at once — once a day for seven straight days — or would you prefer to have the pain spread out once a week for seven weeks?
I’d much rather do it in seven days. That way I would have six weeks to recover! Otherwise I would have seven full bad weeks — the other six days wouldn’t be recovery because you’d be fearing for the next week.
I agree, Gordon. Give me the pain all at once. Spacing it out only prolongs the inevitable suffering!
