This happened years ago, but I just remembered it and thought I'd share: the first company for whom I worked out of college often had me complete RFPs (request for proposal) for potential clients and partners. One of them was a gem; here are two questions:

Q: Are there any foreseeable complications? If so, list them.
A: Fair enough, but there was nothing to report here, so no worries.

Q: Are there any unforeseeable complications? If so, list them.
A: I think I just put "probably", if memory serves. If I'd listed one, wouldn't I have had to move it to the foreseeable list? I felt like Kirk was trying to make my head explode.
