OK, The next time I submit a question, I'll be sure that the fluke answer, if there is one included, can in no way me misconstrued as a possible right answer.

I think some of you are used to trick questions, so you're looking for a sneaky answer.


LOL... Perhaps we should also put in hints like....

"This is not the right answer"
"Don't click this for points"
"j/k"
"Check this answer to win!"

I saw nothing wrong with your question and understand a math joke when I read one. I liked your question, please do not change it at all.

It tested much more than peoples knowledge of SQL and questions that can do that are priceless.

Tell me what the "≡" is and we will use wet noodles for the beating.

It can mean a lot of things, but usually it is a strong indicator of equality or identity.

"Is equivalent to", or "is exactly the same thing as"
