I tend to make sure that a machine doesnt work before showing it to someone else. and if i think it might start working by accident while im going on and on about how it doesnt work, ill make it not work. on some things, thats easy to do. like on my computer, when it wouldnt start up, i was showing my friend and it got past the point where it usually rebooted, i noticed, and surreptitiously rebooted it during startup. my friend didnt notice and was like "man... youre right. thats weird"
