My estemeed President Bergman,

As a reward for my loyalty to you and my role in your coup d'etat, can you please appoint me as the head of the Second Life Federal Management Agency (SL-FEMA) and SL-Homeland Security. I also would like to have unlimited resources to protect our new nation from all kinds of natural calamities and terrorist activities. I understand that this will require almost no effort from my part and I will simply enjoy my big fat salary and help plundering all the resources you will provide to me in the service of our national security. I will of course make sure any of your friends' companies get majority of contracts distributed by my agency. I believe my service will make SL the first completely secure virtual world. I will be grateful to you for this lucrative post and honored to keep serving you.

Sincerely,

Snowcrash Hoffman


Done and Done.

Chairman of SL Federal Emergency Management Agency, Snowcrash Hoffman

Your first task will be leading your crack team of experts to clean up that disaster area known affectionately as "W-hat land" ;-)

Nice Joke

On a scale between 1 and 10, I give this a big fat Zero.

Of course it will. Just don't forget to contribute to the Committee to Re-Elect the President. L$10,000 is the suggested donation this year.

If you define the scale from 1 to 10, then there is absolutely no possible way to have a value lower than 1. It's all about definition. You've decided to allocate a numerical value to quanitfy teh funny based on a relative scale of 1 (which must, by definition, represent the least funny joke ever heard) and 10 (which represents the funniest joke ever heard).

It's like claiming that the ice cream had a temperature, in Kelvin, of -10. It simply makes no sense. Per your own scale, the lowest possible funny factor which this joke could receive would be 1.

I used to own land in Baku. Will I be able to reclaim my home once the clean up is completed? ;)

Ever heard of negative energy/mass ? Imaginary dimensions outside our current detection capabilities allow things to vibrate perpendicularily to reality, causing them to have negative temperature when expressed in K.
