comment The difference between an analogy and a metaphor?
I agree, the grammar isn't great. I chose it from this site solely for its metaphor.

comment Etymology of “What could (possibly) go wrong?”
I must've missed that one, @FumbleFingers. (Though Roberts' Baby-Sitting Is a Dangerous Job was a real favorite in our house.) I was unsurprised to find that the ironic use of "What could go wrong?" and its variants has been around for some time. A Google search led me quickly to this site devoted to this very topic.

comment What should you call a preface for a small document?
I would go with "Introduction" every time, especially for a whitepaper or outline. I do think "Overview" would work if the text truly provides an overview. Regarding the contents of the Introduction: If a document needs instructions on how to be read, perhaps the document needs to be rethought? Or perhaps the author is underestimating his or her readers.
