Experiments in sound

I've been wondering why the volume on this laptop keeps slipping from my default setting of Very Quiet Indeed.


I turns out that there is an undocumented* volume control knob in a position to be moved by my loins. While one has to question the thinking behind the design, I have to be pathetically grateful to find that my loins are still capable of moving anything.




* I'm male and I work with computers and librarians. Of course I don't read the documentation!

Savannah's got me wondering; are loins purely a male feature? Seems a bit unfair - we should all have something to gird from time to time.

'Pelvic girdle' is the female equivalent of a chap's 'loins', isn't it? (I mean, they're really the same thing, but as usual have to be 'branded' differently...)

At least the sound doesn't go up when you move your bowels.
