I'm with Osman on this one. When I hear my kids flicking the window switch
in the back, it's all I can do to bite my lip and keep my mouth shut...I
know that each of those switches has X number of cycles in them, and while
X is a relatively small number, I don't know what it is...nor do I want to
find out...and each tap represents a significant portion of X!
