As a child of the 60s, I would have to vote for all three....and to answer
Craig....the day only goes faster if you have some Jefferson Airplane or
Santana blasting through the headphones. It also helps when you communicate
with the SME, because you would both have the same dazed and confused look.

But the replies are bound to be creative, you'd be sure to learn something,
and morale would undoubtedly be higher :-).

If you go the brownie method, do not use the Alice B. Toklas cookbook.....
you might get the answers you need, but you'll have to wade through a lot of
babble and loud music. Wait, for most SMEs, you have to wade through a lot
of babble anyway.
