Multiple Choices

Welcome to the newest recruit to the Riddled staff.
Magic Robot ALWAYS gives the RIGHT answer (answers vouchsafed by Arthur Mee's Children's Encyclopedia). Sometimes it will even be the same answer as was provided in a previous interview. Judges' decisions are final; no correspondence will be entered into; note that Magic Robot carries the Rod of Incentive to Wisdom and takes not kindly to vexation nor litigation.

Also, questions must be written in Enochian script
Some of the most urgent questions e.g. "Who ate the last of the Chocolate Hobnobs from the staff tea-room?" are unaccountably missing from the list of options, but nevertheless, send in your queries and we'll see what Magic Robot has to say.

Magic Robot has given us written assurances that its world-domination intentions will remain in abeyance during the full period of its Riddled tenure.

The Renaissance version of Magic Robot was perfected by Athanasius Kircher, following sketchy blueprints drawn up by Roger Bacon in the course of the ill-fated 'Brazen Head' project. It was of limited use, for whatever the question the answer was always either "Time Was", "Time Is" or "Time Will Be".

The same design paradigm appears to have been used in designing the User Interface Module in the autopilot of the Riddled Time Machine.

In a fight between the Magic Robot and the Magic 8 Ball, who would win?

Using what special powers?

HAHAHAHAH!!! It's a trick question!!

The answer is Alice.

In any question beginning with "In a fight between..." and ending with "...who would win?" the answer is ALWAYS Alice.
