    Reminds me of an OLD cartoon. This goes back to the days of the "glass room" for controlling physical access to the computer. "Computer room of the future will only contain 3 things - a computer, a man, and a dog. The reason for the computer is obvious and the man is there to feed the dog." "But what's the dog there for?" "To make sure the man does not touch the computer."
