I'm glad I'm not the only that has done this.  I really impressed a date
one time with my ability to quick-fix my MGA.  It wouldn't start, I opened
the hood puzzled, sat back down in the car, saw the key, turned it, started
the car, closed the hood.  The girl thought I was a car god, good thing she
didn't know what an idiot I was.
