[ExI] old software fun

I bought a PC Junior around the early 80s.  It came with a plug-in called
Managing Your Money, by Andrew Tobias.

It had a program that calculated how much life insurance you needed, so I
started filling it out.  After filling out things like smoking and
drinking, I filled in age (around 40 then, but clearly missed a keystroke).

  Immediately I got a popup that said:

You are four years old and you smoke?  Are you crazy?  (verbatim).

It is still the funniest error message I've ever seen.
