The number of people watching you is directly proportional to the stupidity of your action.

(some light philosophy from a forwarded email...)

so i was sitting in the back seat of a friend's car yesterday... the radio was on, and a cd was sitting in the ejected position from the single in-dash cd player of the car. front seat passenger picks up the cd, takes a look, notices a song and asks to listen to it.

i was curious, so asked the driver "why do you have a cd half hanging there anyway?"

"cos i wanted to listen to the radio" says she. (ie when the cd is ejected, the unit switches back to radio).

"why don't you just change it to radio?" asked i.

"how? can you do that?"

"yes... see that little 'AM/FM' button? yes... just press that" by now the cd was already playing, so the pressing of the button had its desired effect.

"wow! i never knew you could do that!"

"ok how do i change it back to cd?" asked the front seat passenger, who wanted to listen to the cd in the first place, as she pressed that same button repeatedly without success.

"umm... you press the *other* button next to it that says 'CD'..."

ps. more of a funny moment tangentially related to the headline, than a real comment on anyone's intelligence ;)

am supposed to hear back early this week about whether this door is open or closed... (well, for the next stage of the process anyway).
