I received the following as an anonymous photocopy, but in the
interests of education felt it deserved widespread publicity.

GUIDE TO SAFE FAX
=================

Q. Do I have to be married to have safe fax?

A. Although married people fax quite often, there are many single
people who fax complete strangers every day.

Q. My parents say they never had fax when they were young and were
only allowed to write memos to each other till they were twenty-one.
How old do you think someone should be before they can fax?

A. Faxing can be performed at any age, once you learn the correct
procedure.

Q. If I fax by myself will I go blind?

A. Certainly not, as far as we can see.

Q. There is a place on our street where you can go and pay for fax.  Is
this legal?

A. Yes, many people have no outlet for their fax needs and must pay a
"professional."

Q. Should a cover always be used for faxing?

A. Unless you are really sure of the one you are faxing, a cover
sheet should always be used to ensure safe fax.

Q. What happens when I incorrectly do the procedure, and I fax
prematurely?

A. Don't panic. Many people prematurely fax when they haven't faxed in
a long time. Just start all over. Most people won't mind if you try
again.

Q. I have a personal and a business fax. Can the transmission become
mixed up?

A. Being bi-faxual can be confusing, but as long as you use a cover
with each one, you won't transmit anything you're not supposed to.
