    An Instance is the instantiation of a type. Okay, in english, an
    Instance is one element that is created from a certain template.
    Example: Start MS Word 2 times. Now you have 2 Words running.
    Each one is an instance of Word. Both are different and yet the
    same type (Word).

    You always have an abstract concept ( class, program, type )
    and you can have realizations of this concept ( object, instance,
    variable ).

    hope you can make something out of my rumblings, I wouldn't
    be able to get the meaning of above sentences, but I don't know
    how to explain it any better.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
