"What does SMSF stand for? Is it: a)  Succubus Martes Solipsis Facto, which is Latin for Succubus Martes Solipsis Facto?"



Today we have a quiz and a few classified ads. First the quiz:

What does SMSF stand for? Is it:

a)  Succubus Martes Solipsis Facto, which is Latin for Succubus Martes Solipsis Facto;

b)  Some Mostly Silly Fund which is not Latin for anything, as far as I know;

c)   One man croquet played by a flamingo;

d)  All or none of the above.

Answer: Sorry, the advisory program has crashed, we’ll have to get back to you.

Question 2.

Why did God invent the Help Desk? Was it because:

a)  He was trying to show people what eternity feels like;

b)  He thinks going insane listening to recorded music is good for the soul.

c)   He doesn’t believe in life before death.

Answer: We have put in a call to the Help Desk and are expecting an answer any century now.

Question 3. What is the meaning of life? Is it:

a)  All of the above;

b)  None of the above;

c)   Abort;

d)  Retry.

Answer: Obviously we are having problems with that question too, and have logged a call to the Help Desk. Actually, it is a bit unfair to call it a Help Desk, because they ring back, occasionally have something intelligent to say, and, in at least one recorded case, have actually managed to help someone.
