  • D) Use the computer to map the nodes of the maze and discover an exit path.
  • E) Email your resume to Google, tell the lead gnome you quit and find yourself a whole different world.

9.) This space left intentionally blank. Please fill it with something that improves upon emptiness.

18.) What’s the coolest hack you’ve ever written?

Oh, alas and alack that I am not a programmer!
