We might as well all contribute.

Back in college in 1969 we would submit our Fortran IV assignments on 
punched card of course.  One day I got back junk and discovered that it was 
not my card deck under the account ID card so I went through the pile of 
returned decks and printouts and found that another student had swiped my 
deck and put his name on top so I took back the deck and shuffled his deck 
well before returning his ID card to the top and resubmitting it.  I never
heard a thing about that episode but I sometimes wonder what his next
output looked like.
