If you're going to show people something then make sure their reputation is worth more than the theft, you have signed papers and leave a hidden mike and recorder going when you leave to use the bathroom. At the very least it will make good Youtube watching.

I find it harder to express logic in English than in Code.
Sometimes an example says more than many times as many words.
