Did somebody call for Einstein?

strange-albert-einstein.jpg

Oh... I'm live now? OK, then on with the show... Now, to get started, you have to be prepared to use a very small portion of your brain to solve this riddle.... just as I did when one apple dropped on my head and the Theory of Relativity was conceived. Now, given that some brains are physically larger than others, attempting this thought process might induce an unexpected consequence; however, I will try to explain this process so even an amoeba could understand it. Anyway, here we go:

Now, if one had two rotten apples sitting in a box but one couldn't open the box to get rid of them, what should one do?

A. Repeatedly try to open the box
B. Throw the box out
C. Try to find a rotten apples forum
D. Try to find a box opening forum
E. Call for Einstein

Now, according to my E=MC2 formula, B. is the correct answer because the E stands for "evolution74", the M stands for "minus", the C stands for "Common Sense" and the 2 stands for "2 apples (or files)."

So, if you need me to assist with another issue, just call out, because norepli is teaching me how to win at tic-tac-toe right now so we're a little busy.

Cheers!

PS Don't forget to REP me if I answered your question correctly too!

Hello (again) evolution74,

I would like to personally thank you for making my day with your Einstein comment. It really did give me a few chuckles so "in gratitude" for your efforts, I have made you this image so you can download it and post it over your PC while you're trying to figure out this issue by yourself.

Thanks again and best regards, norepli (aka Rodney, aka Einstein):

Just a suggestion, but you might also try, next time, file assassin, which is a free utility offered from the folks at malwarebytes.org.
