Flat whites, hipsters and the post-mortgage British economy — Bull Market — Medium
And that’s that — in general, these guys don’t have mortgages. That actually makes them quite unusual when considered as small businesspeople in the UK. Because, historically, a very high proportion of business lending in the British market has been mortgage-lending-in-disguise. The business loan is usually secured, and usually additionally secured by a charge over the owner’s house.

Cybernethics / Cybernéthique - Confusing constants and variables in Computer Programming
But the interesting constant when you choose between ways to factor your system and compare the resulting complexity is not the number of components, but the overall functionality that the system does or doesn't provide.
