Don't worry, Spike, you can blame it all on me! Just tell your neighbors
that Eliezer Yudkowsky was in your house at the time, and that strange
things often happen when Eliezer Yudkowsky is around. Then, when they ask
who Eliezer Yudkowsky is, incredulously say "You don't know who Eliezer
Yudkowsky is?" and refuse to tell them anything. If they ask you who
Eliezer Yudkowsky is at any later time, pretend that you've never heard
the name and are puzzled by their questions. See if you can get your wife
to go along with it.
