Say no to Butt Crack
Chris Jackson's Semantic Consonance : The Windows 7 UAC Slider, and What You Can Do on Windows Vista Today:
"Now, my friend Crispin would prefer a different UI metaphor than a slider – he’d like to see a pair of pants – the further down you pull the slider, the further down your pants are while you’re computing.

So if you are the abnormal person like I am, go into Windows 7 settings and go pull up your pants and stop showing that butt crack.
The default is this:
This is MAJOR butt crack:
