todays useless question

why are stock market quotes always delayed 15-20 minutes?
this must be done purposefully because, well, nothing is delayed 15-20 seconds these days, but it is done this way every where.

They're are certain programs where you can see the quotes not delayed - live - but I think they a subscription services - often provided by a broker.

Another dumb question: Why am I humming the theme song to the A-Team?
