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.

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"
