I was just thinking today....

  • synchronized: The single line open at the DMV
  • thread pool: Cashiers at the grocery store
  • reentrant read/write locks: The tiny booths at Saturday Market
  • volatile: The "in-use" sign on airplane restrooms
  • concurrent collections: Open-air Farmers Market
  • FIFO: freeway on-ramp
  • LIFO: UHaul Boxes

anyone else want to contribute some?
