    I believe what he is saying is that giving truthful answers to some of those questions could land one in jail in the US. Yes, I work for Apple. We were meeting with executives at IBM and we talked about acquiring their company. Under SEC law, this is privileged information and cannot be disclosed to anyone not cleared by your company to know it. You've just become an informant for insider trading, welcome to Danbury.

    Naw. Ya jus' have to pay any profits as a fine to the SEC. Note that there is no victim identified here to receive the "ill gotten profit" fine.

    That depends on whether or not your mother acted on the information. All three of us could be headed to the clink, me for telling you, you for acting on it and your mother if she did either. It's insider trading.

    I get top bunk!

    I take the opposite tack. I launch into overly friendly, long-winded blabberings that very quickly have their eyes glazing over and they never even get to the second question before waving me along.

    I like. Then when they try to cut you off, keep the banter going, follow them around.
