The analogy is a powerful tool to explain even apparently hard physics concepts. By substituting a complex system with one closer to one's experience, we allow the listener to construct a mental image which is the basis of a successful understanding of the properties or behaviour of the system being discussed. In this presentation the author will discuss his experience with offering successful and insuccessful analogies for hard-to-grasp particle physics concepts to an audience of laypersons through his personal blog, A Quantum Diaries Survivor (http://www.science20.com/quantum_diaries_survivor).
