Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1381
sferics, quango, auspicious, amok
I've been listening to shortwave radio in the night when I can't sleep for years, and over the last few weeks I've been hearing sferics distort my reception in short bursts that repeat at such regular intervals that I'm convinced they're caused by some artificial source rather than natural lightning; but my attempt to report this to the authorities is not off to an auspicious start: I've found an alphabet soup of government agencies and quangos, and bureaucracy run amok, but nobody interested in hearing about my discovery.
