The Four Questions From Denver

The Colorado Rocky mountain high / I've seen it rainin' fire in the sky / The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullaby / It's the Four Questions high:

Q. What is Dave wearing?
A. Dave is back in the hotel room, and wearing a t-shirt and shorts. Earlier he was wearing a -- what's that thing called, the whaddayacallit with sleeves? -- oh yeah, a jacket. He had to wear it because it was -- what's that other thing called, the thing where it's not hot and humid? -- that's right, chilly.

Q. How does Dave feel today?
A. Dave has a terrible headache right now.

Q. What are the factors affecting Dave's mood today?
A. Dave believes his headache is caused by Denver's famously low levels of oxygen. Dave explains that Denver is located about ten thousand feet above sea level, and therefore there's much less oxygen in the atmosphere here than there is, say, in a place that has more oxygen. Dave also explains that the lack of oxygen has made him forget everything he ever learned about geography, and hindered his ability to create compelling metaphors.

Q. Is there any possibility that Dave will suffer permanent brain damage because of his exposure to low oxygen levels in Denver?
A. Dave says his mental capacities remain as sharp as even.
