Like most webusers, my inbox is haunted by chain letters from people who love to harrass me. Most are codswallop (isn't that a great word?) but some really are blantantly crap. I recieved this one just the other day containing all sorts of questions that are meant to make me chuckle but only succeed in being slightly annoying. Can you answer these questions so I can send your answers out on the internet in the hope that these people will shut up? I wait with baited breath - Mzebonga
