    Question. Which of the following files will first be executed if
    found in a distribution?

    Answer; Anything that looks exciting. I'd go for death, but the less bold
    might try corruption first. Things that are only harmful get no attention
    at all.

    In the 'olden' days, stuff in /sbin was considered off-limits without
    the explicit written documentation at hand (Try to partition a hard-
    disk under Ultrix). When asked; "Do you want to write (Y/N)?", the
    answers were not Y/N! You had to look in the documentation and
    find that the only way to commit the write was by typing
    "Yes, absolutely, positively!"

    This helped keep the learners from destroying their systems.
