Lee was: the Incarnation  !

The Internet Oracle has pondered your question deeply.
Your question was:

> Oracle,
> My power keeps flickering on and off.  Is there anything I can do about
> it?  For that matter, is there anything you can do about it?

And in response, thus spake the Oracle:

} Yes, there's something you can do about it.  Tell your friends and
} neighbors to stop sending moronic questions to me.  And variations of
} the Forbidden Question.  (You know, the one about w..dch.cks.)  Then I
} can stop using the Staff of Zot so much.  This thing doesn't run on
} batteries, you know.

Notes: Not one of my better answers, probably, but when asked about power flickering, the Staff of Zot popped into my head. Imagine it's tied into a power grid somewhere, and everytime the Oracle uses it, the lights dim. Kind of like they used to show with the electric chair in old movies.
