Hi! An anecdote for you... When I was in high school, one of our little
gang of computer hoodlums managed to come up with an ascii printout of a
naked woman. During lunch, we hung it up behind the pull-down projector
screen. When classes resumed, we were (naturally) giggling like mad about
how witty and clever we were to have not only obtained this delectable bit
of naughtiness, but also at outsmarting the teacher.

Well, he (the teacher) figured out something was up, and inquired about it.
Somehow he learned of our devilry and went over to check it out. Well,
rather than tearing it down and punishing us, dirty old man that he was, he
promptly rolled the screen up and left it hanging there for all to see!

Ah, to be young again...
