Cyrus asks: "Daddy, where did I come from?"
Dad says: "Ah, my son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway!" and ponders how to put it in words the lad can understand.

"Well, we sneaked into a secluded room, where your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive. As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the ESCape key...."
"Then what?" the boy asked.
