$ mkdir testing; echo 'hi' > testing/hello; chmod 0664 testing/hello; sudo chown root:root -R testing; sudo chmod 0751 testing;
$ cat testing/hello
$ ls testing
ls: testing: Permission denied
$ sudo chmod 750 testing;
$ cat testing/hello
cat: testing/hello: Permission denied

America was far better suited to be the World's Movie Star. The
world's tequila-addled pro-league bowler. The world's acerbic bi-polar
stand-up comedian. Anything but a somber and tedious nation of
socially responsible centurions.
