[ale] OT: humor - XKCD



I can see the humor in that, but cannot empathise. I've never
understood why guys have a hard time with that. I can understand why
it's hard for a woman to undo her own, but not from a 3rd party. I can
undo my wife's left handed while brushing my teeth with my dominant
hand. I would expect an EMACS user could undo a bra with a broken
thumb.
