I once worked in a warehouse with a radio which was broken and 
permanently tuned to Virgin (or at least that was the reason given when 
anyone got too close to the radio with intentions of making it all stop). 
After a few weeks my friend Ben could almost be reduced to tears by people 
humming "Breakfast at Tiffanys" by Deep Blue Something...

put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come
out?' I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of
ideas that could provoke such a question."
