Complicated, or just tricky, modern physics problem

This is not homework, my friend sent this to me randomly and told me to solve and idk....

"A pogo stick, ****ing one sideways, is oscillating at a frequency of 700 THz with a negatively charged particle emitting a photon which then collides with a photoelectric cell with a negligible work function causing a current in a circuit with a loud speaker with a total resistance of 10 ohms which emits a sound wave which diffracts through a double slit with a separation of 2, a gap width of .5 and a length of 100 m, where the value of d determines the x of the compression of a spring which, after release, determines the speed at which an electron approaches a uranium-238 atom which spontaneously under goes positive beta decay, and the escaping particle has the equal but opposite velocity of the electron which then collides with it, resulting in two gamma rays.

What is the net momentum of the gamma rays? and why?"

I said 0 because of conservation of momentum but, idk

I'd say you were correct. (The rest of the problem statement is just a smoke screen, mostly nonsense.)
