What's the time?

| Does anyone know a place where I could get free listserve/majordomo
| facilities?  I popped this question sometime back as well and got quite 
| a response, but none of the places were free.  One place offered to let
| me beta test their UUCP software, but they need a shell account for
| that, which I don't have.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. - Roshan

This guy is at the airport waiting for his flight which leaves at 6:00 but
he has forgotten his watch, so he looks for someone to ask the time.  He
spots this guy walking past carrying 2 suitcases and sporting this fabulous
hi-tech watch, so he asks him for the time.  The guy replies "Sure, which
country?".  Our fella asks "How many countries have you got?" to which the
reply is "All the countries in the world!" 

"Wow! That's a pretty cool watch you've got there."

"That's nothing.  This watch also has a GPS facility, fax, e-mail and can
even receive NTSC televison channels and display them on its miniature
active colour pixel LCD screen!"

"Boy, that's incredible.  I wish I had a watch like that one.... You
wouldn't consider selling it by any chance?" 

"Well, actually the novelty has worn off by now, so for $900, if you want
it, it's yours!" 

Our watchless traveller can hardly whip out his cheque book fast enough, and
hands over a cheque for $900.

The seller takes off the watch and gives it to him.

"Congratulations, here is your new high tech watch!" and then handing the 2
suitcases over as well he says, "and here are the batteries!"

Thanks to HelenMarie Pieszak for this contribution.
