This interviewee would only answer the interview questions if I hired him

Over the past 4 days, I dedicated most of my time on resume screening and interviews. It is a boring job but you get some fun out of it sometimes.

So, here's some fun I collected this morning. An interviewee who thought I would hire him straight without asking any questions related to the job.

That's very interesting.

But, Z*,

Our team actually built the core logic of the Iron Man's latest armor "Bleeding 
Edge", appointed by Stark Industries after going through their professional 
selection of industrial partners.

We're very serious about QA, as the product is used (and will only be used) in 
critical missions that define the future of the mankind. I urge you to answer these 
questions and hope you understand why and how so serious they are.

He hasn't yet gotten back to me 'til now. If you have someone better than this guy who is looking for a QA job, or to be a Sysadmin/Java/PHP/Python engineer, let me know at career-my@onapp.com.
