Git makes so much more sense when you understand how it really works, because its really a two trick pony. But when people start explaining Git they start talking about Directed Acyclic Graphs and Octopus Merges.

Tinker Toys are the best illustration of a Git repository I've found. Side-by-side with issuing Git commands, we'll build a Git repository out of kid's toys showing what's going on behind the scenes. Mind bending concepts like remote branching, rebase and the staging area become child's play.
