McDonnell Douglas New Owner Questioniare

This was allegedly posted very briefly on the McDonnell Douglas Website by
an employee there, who obviously has a sense of humour.
The company, of course, does not have a sense of humour, and made the web
department take it down immediately (for once, the 'IMPORTANT' note at the
end is worth a read too...).
