So a helicopter pilot caught in the thick fog is having trouble figuring out where he is. He flies close to a building and holds up a sign to the occupants, "Where am I?" The occupants quickly scribble a sign back, "You are in a helicopter." The pilot veers off and flies straigh to the airport to land. His amazed passengers ask, how that response helped. The pilot said, "the response was absolutely accurate, and absolutely useless, so I knew I was at Microsoft."
