“Bloody hell, granny.
I lost marks on my SD exam because you said that because of the Australian federal intersex legislation of 2013, bits now have the right to be identified as ‘interbit’ and not rigidly categorised as simply 1 or 0.

On the positive side, interbits have led me to a breakthrough in quantum computing, so I now own Google, Apple, Microsoft, Intel, IBM, Telstra, Facebook … [phone rings] … and Tasmania, apparently. Huh. Can’t even remember bidding for that.”
