Who am I?
Take off your jacket, find the inside of the collar, read what's written on a little label there, this should be your name.   Oddly enough most people seem to share the same name of St Michael.

What am I doing here?
I know, I've often wondered that as well.  Well actually you should be working right now instead of skiving off work surfing the net all day.

What are the Time/Space Continuum Coordinates(Galactic Standard version)?

x (in parsecs) =
0.8929 times the radius of galaxy plus 3,229,318,937 times the time in millisecoids since the big bang
y (in parsecs) =
0.000000000000000174 times the height of the Great Zarquon's left big toe plus 3,229,318,937 times the time in millisecoids since the big bang
z (in parsecs) =
um I'll get back to you on that, my slide rule's just broken
u (Universe no.) =
Parallel universe number 42
t (time in millisecoids) =
42 to the power of 42  plus the price of a good hot cup of tea in Betelgeuse
