$ emacs /bin/sh
Loading thai-util...
Loading mule-util...done
Loading thai-util...done

Loading ind-util...done
Loading composite...done
Loading tibet-util...done

Got an idea, why not say "Uh, Holmes, /bin/sh is a ELF 32-bit LSB
executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.2.0,
dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.2.0, stripped,
shall we w: wrongly assume it is multicultural text, thus bloating
emacs for the remainder of the session, h: invoke some hex editing
mode, q: back out of your certainly mistaken attempt to open the wrong
file, f: forever allow me to blunder ahead as multicultural text next
