   <para>“Unfortunately, the crops in my field, because of the Enemy’s activity, were not as successful as I hoped for. Therefore, I cannot offer you a job.”</para>
   <para>“But the last missile which the Enemy fired and which hit your land was 7 years ago.”</para>
   <para>“Still, the explosives remained in the soil.”</para>
-  <para>“I’m afraid I disagree. The amount of work you put into removing them, not to mention the erosion during all that time, were supposed to leave only a minute amount of them in the field, if at all. And besides, there is no indication that harvest that grows on a field with a small amount of them will not grow normally.”</para>

   <para>“Never mind. I still think that there was a long term effect.”</para>
   <para>“Okay. I’ll try someplace else. Bye!”</para>
   <para>“Good bye to you too.”</para>
   <para>“Do you have any plans for the future?”</para>
   <para>“Absolutely. I intend to publish a book with my memoirs from the last period. In my opinion, it will be one of the most revolutionary books since Aristotle’s <emphasis>Organum</emphasis>, and I hope it will help lower the prestige of the last treatise. I noticed that the contents of this treatise receives an almost full consensus, even in the wide public, and this is despite the fact that most people had never read it. Doubtless, this treatise had an enormous conscious and subconscious effect since it was written — unjustifiably in my opinion — and I hope my book will help decrease it in considerably.”</para>
   <para>“Tell me, the ex‐Member, do you have any hobbies? What do you do in your spare time?”</para>
-  <para>“Among the activities I do in my spare time I can list the following: finding closer and closer solutions to a set of differential equations from the second degree. I also deal in trying to understand the sentences I said in the past. Besides that, I planned a political simulator that forecast the two World Wars after I entered all the relevant data until the year 1000 AD.”</para>

   <para>“Do you have a computer at home?”</para>
   <para>“Oh, no! At present the program is written on a paper. Don’t ask how much time it took me to fully eliminate all bugs out of it. But it was great fun!”</para>
   <para>“Is that all?”</para>
   <para>“Yes, and, aside from that, in ‘Marital Status’ you were supposed to fill in if you’re single or married, with or without children, and so on.”</para>
   <para>“Oh! If I had been married, I would have also written there that I’m a husband, son‐in‐law, brother‐in‐law and so forth, while if I had had children I would have also put ‘father’.”</para>
   <para>“O.K., but it seems to me that there is a more serious problem. You are the citizen of the Country, which is in a state of war with the Enemy; you were a member of the Organisation and took a part in terrorist activity that was aimed against the Enemy, and if that’s not enough you write that the purpose of your visit is ‘hostile espionage’. I don’t think we can let you in our country that way.”</para>
-  <para>“In my opinion, you should have an interest to let me in now. After all, I am the ex‐Member of the Organisation, a person with a central role and a long‐term effect on politics. If I stood in charge of your security institutions, I would have been very happy if I had been able to interview myself, and I can’t see a better chance to do that than if I visit your country, where you’ll have a legal privilege to do so. Besides that, I must indicate that my espionage methods are too sophisticated for me to have to take illegal espionage actions, such as obtaining secret documents, or listening to conferences behind closed doors.”</para>

   <para>“Oh. Do you mean that you only intend to do things that a regular tourist is freely allowed to do?”</para>
   <para>“Absolutely.”</para>
-  <para>“Ah hah.” The clerk said and thought for a moment. “Know what? I am going to pass on your request to the higher levels. In case you get an approval to enter the Enemy’s country, I’ll let you know about it by phone, as long you stay in this country.”</para>

   <para>“All right. Goodbye.”</para>
   <para>“Goodbye to you too and thanks for your help.”</para>
