Just Because Google Exists Doesn’t Mean You Should Stop Asking People Things

 I found a pretty interesting thing :- If you spend any amount of time online you’re probably very familiar with the above website,Let Me Google That For You LMGTFY is a super smug and hilarious site built for those sick of “all those people that find it more convenient to bother you with their question rather than google it for themselves.

Also “Because of Google,” Mecurio said. “Everyone would call their friend and the friend would start Googling to get the answer. The contestant would be like, ‘Hey Joe, aspirin. A-S-P-I-R-I-N.’ We could hear them typing on their keyboard!”

Google has basically become an extension of our brain, as of Mr. Steve Jobs’ Bicycle for Our Mind
Twice this week I have asked questions that would be better suited to a human rather than an search engine algorithm and both times I’ve been met with a “just Google it”-  Clumsy response [:x].
