} Well, dear supplicant, in order for us to understand your motivation,
} we will have to review the questions that you have asked over the
} years. However, since your foolish questions are not worthy of
} reprint, we will only review the answers that I have given you in the
} past. Also, I like Jeapordy.

} You unworthy fool! Here I am, offering MY valuable time to answer
} questions, and the first one I get is trivial! Do not invoke my wrath
} again with such nonsense. By the way, it's the second door on the
} #Qa00002 (Aug, 1989)
} Sigh. There should be some extra rolls under the sink.
} #Qa00067 (Sep, 1989)
} Channel 5, at 6:30. Could you do me the favor of at least making an
} _attempt_ to ask questions of a more cosmic scale.
} #Qa01123 (Jan, 1990)
} It means- to do more than is required, ordered or expected. It's from
} the latin supererogare (to spend more). It is what you're _not_ doing
} with your groveling, I might add.
} #Qa05514 (Nov, 1990)
} That really isn't any of your business, you know. Let's just say that
} Lisa is, well, enthusiastic. Very enthusiastic.
} #Qa09632 (May, 1991)
} Nice grovel! Unfortunately, it is not possible for me to quantify it,
} because woodchucks _don't_ chuck wood.
} #Qa14523 (Dec, 1991)
} My guess is that she's really sick and tired of getting baskets of
} fruit, particularly since she had the last of her teeth extracted 12
} years ago. Why don't you give her a decent pillow this year. The one
} that they issued her at the home is pretty ratty. By the way, this is
} the last Christmas you'll be spending together.
} #Qa19020 (Apr, 1992)
} How long have you been using a UNIX system? Presuming you have the C
} Shell, you can try this-
} foreach f ( *.foo )
} set base=`basename $f .foo`
} mv $f $base.bar
} #Qa19021 (Apr, 1992)
} How on earth did you manage that! You truly are a woefully inadaquate
} person. Try this-
} rm /server/home/suplicant/data/-i
} #Qa21901 (Nov, 1992)
} You can't figure this one out on your own? I'm afraid that George will
} be taking this one on the chin. It's nice to be a deity- at least I
} get some respect.
} #Qa24676 (Mar, 1993)
} No, it wasn't named after David Bowie. It was named after _James_
} Bowie, who was born in 1790, and died in 1836. He used it primarily
} for hunting. Why do you care?
} #Qa25343 (Apr, 1993)
} Simple. Because I answer them.
} By the way, you still owe the Oracle a bidet, your ex-girlfriends phone
} number, a BETA(tm) copy of FLASHDANCE, a woodchuck cage, a simulated
} wood grain tea kettle, a listing of USL's source code, a big box of
} super balls, and a vote cast for me as President. By the way, I'm
} sending that crate of 8 track tapes back to you, freight collect. I
} never asked for them, you idiot.
