    Indeed.

    When I worked for Coleco, I noticed that ColecoVision game instruction booklets usually ended with something like:

    "The Thrill Of Discovery
    This game has other features and opportunities than those explained in this booklet. Enjoy the thrill of discovery!"

    I don't recall the exact words but it sure was a handy way to explain bugs!
