Not me. I have to have the visual. For instance, I tend think of variables as gold bars. Sure, you can accomplish at lot with them, but they're unwieldly and lugging around a bunch of gold bars slows everything down. Wouldn't you really rather carry a nice scrap of paper in your pocket with a denomination written on it?? ;)
Where in the nursery rhyme does it say Humpty Dumpty is an egg?
