Hey, this is question number two on the list of Microsoft
interview questions.

The answer is:
  Stand up, walk out of the room, tell the Microsoft
  Interviewer that you just realized that you left the
  oven on and you are worried about your parakeets and
  get the hell out of WA. Be happy with your decision that
  you've avoided a slow, agonizing death of programming for
  sub-premium wages and underwater stock options based on
  the dream that MSFT stock will never go down.
