Four Questions

The Four Questions’ Guide to the Galaxy

What is Dave wearing today? Dave is wearing a pink T-shirt and shorts.

How does Dave feel today? Dave can’t complain.

What are the factors affecting Dave’s mood today? Dave began his day with a sunrise run and ended it with ice cream. If you subtract the time spent working, it was a very pleasant day.

What happens to Dave’s missing pens? Dave believes in this crackpot theory from Douglas Adams’ Hitchhikers’ Guide to the Galaxy:

Somewhere in the cosmos, he said, along with all the planets inhabited by humanoids, reptiloids, fishoids, walking treeoids and superintelligent shades of the color blue, there was also a planet entirely given over to ballpoint life forms. And it was to this planet that unattended ballpoints would make their way, slipping away quietly through wormholes in space to a world where they knew they could enjoy a uniquely ballpointoid lifestyle, responding to highly ballpoint-oriented stimuli, and generally leading the ballpoint equivalent of the good life.
