} POSITION SHIFT DOESN'T HELP WHITE HENS
} Mariners Cruise to Easy Victory
} Despite Infield Switch
}
} by FRED FAKENAME
} News Staff Writer
}
} PODUNK--"I finally got tired of all the 'Who's on first?' jokes,"
} said manager Bud Abbott following yesterday's game, explaining why he
} had switched Who to second base and brought What over to first base.
}     The change in the defensive alignment didn't help, as Seattle rode
} seven home runs by six players and strong pitching from Aaron Sele
} and Kazuhiro Sasaki to a 18-0 victory over the White Hens.  Seattle
} is now 56 games ahead of Podunk in the American League West standings
} and is expected to clinch the American League pennant in early
} August, making the playoffs unnecessary.
}     "I played second base in college sometimes," remarked Who, who
} made several strong defensive plays but struck out four times.
} "Trust me, the problem was not that What and I traded places."
}     It was the White Hens' thirty-seventh defeat in the last
} thirty-eight games.  "I still think there's some good things to
} come," said Abbott.  "I really don't think you've seen the best of
} this ballclub.  You have to be encouraged about a lot of things that
} you accomplished to this point, and also what lies ahead in the
} second half of the season."
}     Most of the fans in attendance were cheering for the Mariners, the
} club with the best record in the history of professional sports, and
} loudly booing Abbott and assistant manager Lou Costello.
}     "I'm not yelling 'Lou,' I'm booing," said season ticket holder
} Chuck Fictional, one of the few in the stands wearing a White Hens
} T-shirt.  "I mean, he hasn't even figured out the names of the
} players this far into the season!  He keeps yelling things like,
} 'Throw the ball to Naturally!' and Bud has to correct him, 'No, you
} don't, you throw the ball to Who!'"
}     Later, Fictional bought an Ichiro Suzuki jersey and put it on over
} his White Hens shirt after the Mariners rookie hit his second home
} run of the game off relief pitcher Last Tuesday.  Carlos Guillen,
} Bret Boone, Mike Cameron, John Olerud, and designated hitter Edgar
} Martinez also had home runs.
}     The only White Hens with hits were Because, I Don't Give a Darn,
} and I Don't Know, all shallow singles.
}     "They're just hot right now," said I Don't Know, referring to the
} Mariners.  "Everything they do is good."

The Internet Oracle has pondered your question deeply. Your question was:

> Oh most puissant and paradoxical puzzler of paradigmatic paradoxes,
>
> How can I build a TARDIS?

And in response, thus spake the Oracle:

} Oh, that's one of my favourites!
}
} First, get some bread. I prefer sourdough on my sandwiches, but you
} might like something different. French bread, for instance, is quite
} delightful as you can slice it lengthwise to put the fillings in,
} and then by width to share with friends -- or, if you don't have any
} friends, to cut into portions. Some would have you believe that
} cornbread is a good substitute, but I wouldn't believe them if I
} were you.
}
} Next, some mustard. Go ahead and slather that stuff in there. You
} can put in mayonnaise, too, if you wish, but I usually stay away
} from that sort of thing. Pure fat, you know. It's just not good for
} you, and it's generally regarded as a bad thing when your arteries
} clog up.
}
} Now for one of the main ingredients: tomatoes. Slice 'em up and put
} in as many as you think you can stomach. Remember: red tomatoes are
} our friends. Green tomatoes are our enemies.
}
} Then there's avocado. Avocado is always a bit troubling to prepare
} because of the fairly large pit in the middle, but it's really not
} that bad once you realize that it's there (you should see the faces
} of some people struggling to cut through a pit for the first time).
} Peel the avocado first, then slice it lengthwise so that when you do
} come across the pit, you've already got half the avocado in your
} sandwich. Flip over and continue on the other side. You can plant
} the pit if you like, but usually it's far too late for gardening
} once the plant matter hits the grocery stores.
}
} (One final note on avocadoes: they're best when left out for a day
} or two, on a counter (perhaps in a fruit basket) so that they're a
} bit softer and a touch more ripe. Trust me, they'll just taste
} better.)
}
} So now we come to the ingredient that most people find questionable,
} and thus why the TARDIS is not widely regarded as a popular meal of
} choice: the radish. Radishes have exactly the distinctive flavour
} we're looking for, however, so go ahead and cut that bad boy up and
} pop it into the sandwich right on top of the avocado and tomatoes.
} It's starting to look really good right about now, I bet.
}
} What's a sandwich without meat? Horrid, that's what. So now it's
} time for the "D" in our acronym: dog. No, put Fluffy down! -Hot-
} dogs are what we want, and a ballpark frank tastes better than a
} poodle any day of the week -- at least without a fine wine sauce and
} some limburger cheese, but that's a recipe for another time. Boil
} the dogs, slice them, and lay them into the sandwich however you
} like.
}
} The very last ingredient is, of course, the ichthyosaur. While most
} people would have you believe that this marine beast has long since
} been extinct, there are ways around that sort of obstacle. Use your
} handy-dandy time machine to step back a couple million years and
} snag one for yourself. I would highly suggest using any lower-level
} pachyderm as bait. Remember to remove the teeth!
}
} And that's how you make a Tomato-Avocado-Radish-Dog-Ichthyosaur
} Sandwich, or TARDIS.
}
} You owe the Oracle some fresh Ichthyosaur. Og hasn't gone fishing in
} months.

The Internet Oracle has pondered your question deeply. Your question was:

> Why do some people get completely offended if you open their
> refrigerator without asking?

And in response, thus spake the Oracle:

} Schrodinger is mostly known for his thought experiment involving
} a cat in a box that is both alive and dead at the same time. He is
} less well known for his less successful thought experiment in which
} a person who has not yet opened the fridge is half alive and half dead.
}
} Suppose we take a person, a refrigerator, and the refrigerator's
} owner; further suppose that the person is going to say, "I'm going
} to get a can of pop from the fridge". There is a fifty-fifty chance
} that the refrigerator's owner will think that the person opening
} the fridge is a self-sufficient, relaxed friend who doesn't want to
} bother his hosts to get something trivial like a can of pop. There is
} also a fifty-fifty chance that the refrigerator's owner will think
} that the person is a mooching, sonovabitch who's philandering with
} the lady of the house and who must spend so much time there that he
} thinks nothing of opening the fridge because it may as well be his.
} This is especially true if there actually no pop in the refrigerator.
} If the refrigerator's owner concludes the former, the person will
} remain alive and stand much to gain at his beneficence. If the
} refrigerator's owner concludes the latter, he will be very offended
} and the person will be dead. Now the question, What is the state of
} the person opening the fridge without asking after the hour?
}
} The only way to really tell is to open the fridge. Until then, you are
} both a wonderful friend and a heartless bastard. Opening the fridge
} collapses the waveform and you are either one or the other--alive or
} dead. It is virtually impossible to tell both the speed and position
} of a quantum particle, there are just probable places it could be, or
} probable speeds it could be travelling. Likewise, it is impossible to
} tell both the degree of psychosis of the fridge's owner and whether
} there's actually pop in the fridge or not--there are just probable
} degrees of psychosis and probable numbers of cans. Opening the fridge
} and counting the number of cans changes the degrees of psychosis of the
} fridge's owner since now, you must not be sleeping with his wife, on
} account of you getting a can of pop. Changing the degrees of psychosis
} of the refrigerator's owner by telling him that you are indeed sleeping
} with his wife makes the number of cans in the fridge irrelevant.
}
} Personally, I liked the cat better.
}
} You owe the Oracle a can of pop.

> What are the job opportunities for paranoids?  I know they don't
> want to hire me anyway, but if they did, what would they have me do,
> and what should I watch out for if I decide to take the job?

And in response, thus spake the Oracle:

} There are many jobs for paranoids. In fact, they're really short on
} paranoids. So much so that they're out looking for them. You may think
} that they don't want to hire you, but that's what they want you to
} think so they can find you more easily. Paranoids can do so many things
} that other people can't--they can hear when people are talking about
} certain subjects; they can sense if someone is out to get the company;
} they're meticulous about details. And you can bet if someone's out to
} brainwash the employees with subliminal messages that the paranoid is
} going to pick it up first. But here's the catch that you have to really
} watch out for: All the people that are around you are out to get you.
} They've already been brainwashed to talk about you and they're really
