This reminds me of a joke; unfortunately I couldn't track it down
in a quick look on altavista and I haven't any more time to look for it.
In short, a man attends several days of a trade show and each day
tells a security guard that today he will steal many things and yesterday
he stole many good things. He is stealing ideas.

Remember to clear your brain of how public key cryptography works
before leaving the USA ...
