Added DiffLines:

All this will never take into account the actions an average human being would be most likely to take upon stumbling across something hidden under a big white sheet. Most people would first lift a part of said sheet so that if it turns out not to be of any particular interest, everything can be put back in order smoothly, rather than, you know, wasting four hours trying to get the damn thing back up. Not to mention the fact that tossing the curtain in a dramatic fashion might easily get you covered in a two-inch thick layer of dust as well as have all those precious but long forgotten pots, that were posted on top of the wardrobe years ago, smashed into pieces.

* In ''ThomasTheTankEngine And Friends'', the removal of his workshop dust sheet is how we are first introduced to Percy. [[hottip: In the corresponding book, the engines in the workshop were not under dust sheets, but the sheets were necessary here to disguise the fact that the regular engines were standing in for the other workshop engines.]]
