In other news, ZDNet reported today that all of the major auto makers are urging that you don't leave your keys in your car when you've parked it in a public place, that you should consider perhaps locking your front door when you leave for work in the morning, and, oh, by the way, change your underwear regulary (more than once a month, graz).

Underwear? What's that? (I can hear Merkin saying "eeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww", as well he should)

Actually, I leave my car doors unlocked and the keys in the ignition...next to the rabid German Shepard in the front seat.

I also leave my front door wide open (lots of fresh air!), with a sign next to it saying "Prison Shower This Way ->".

So far I've had no problems...
