If there is a number I do not recognize, or no number shows up at all, I simply do not answer. Everybody that I know have a number I recognize, all other numbers have no business calling me at all. I'm simply not curious enough to answer unknown numbers.
If I have mistaken me and answered anyhow, they usually only have 2 seconds to say what they want (poll, or sell something), before I tell them to go to a hotter place, and that in no uncertain terms. People I do not know, have no business calling my private phone.
This is a test of the Emergency Moron System. Had there been a real moron in the room, there would've been a small mushroom cloud in the place where the idiot had been standing.
