Dave and Judi,
I am an instructor for the University of South Florida's Computer Science and Engineering Department. On my quizzes, I give extra credit questions for my students that allow them to have fun and serve as a one-point protection against silly mistakes, so they feel less nervous. I think you two would appreciate the question I gave last week. I attached some of the more clever responses.
You have awakened to a world where squirrels have become the dominant species on Earth. They are the same size and strength as your normal squirrel, yet everyone you know seems to believe it is their moral obligation and duty to be at the beck and call of any and all squirrels. Humans and squirrels can communicate, but part of modern human equation is Squirrel Language. People dedicate their lives to serving squirrels (Squirrel Studies is considered a more desirable major than Engineering, unless your Engineering discipline is used to help the needs of suffering squirrels), and harming a squirrel is considered the highest crime a human can commit. As you've probably guessed, these squirrels are not benevolent rulers. They take full advantage of the servitude of humans, and their treatment of humans outrages you.
You are the only person who knows the ways of old. What do you do?
