They built the computer to ponder the impenetrable mysteries
of the universe.  They approached it one day with a question.

"What is the nature of God?" demanded the engineers.

"Blow me," drawled the Great Abacus, and returned to doodling
suggestive sketches on its monitor.

"Now wait a minute!" insisted the indignant humans.  "We built
you.  We have a right to some answers."

"Not so," the computer replied.  "To solve a paradox you need
an ego.  You gave me that ego, and I'm going to use it.  So
sod off."  The engineers left, unenlightened.

Sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from crap.
