Some years ago while teaching computer literacy at a university, some of
my students told me they'd been at a nearby restaurant complaining with
each other about how stupid the class was (we were covering privacy in
the information age), while they were filling out credit card
applications to get a free sandwich.  I asked them what they did when
they realized the privacy implications.  "We got our free stuff and
started talking about girls."
