Nope. You can see everything.

What I'm saying is you're claiming what you see can't possibly be exactly 
what it is. For obvious reasons, your definition of "can't" is thus rather 
incongruous with mine :)

And it's directories, not files, for which the implicit ownership being 
talked about comes into play.
