God bless Google
« on: April 03, 2013, 03:07:40 AM »
Without it, I would still be tearing my hair out trying to figure out the word for a person who serves wine at upscale establishments (a sommelier) and the French phrase for "flavour of the day"  (saveur du jour).

What have YOU learned, thanks to Google?

Today, I typed in "Why do I..."

The top 4 results were "Why do I sweat so much", "Why do I have have no friends", "Why do I bruise so easily", and "Why do I fart so much"

Can't help but feel those are all related somehow...

This thread made me remember that one month where google tried to ruin youtube by taking like every good video on the site down.

That was terrible when it happened but hilarious now.

Thanks to Google I've learned about a lot of things not appropriate for this forum. :-) ::)

I've learned that anything I Google is recorded, remembered and then used to focus my later searches.  (Not to mention used to create personalized ads and who knows what else.) Which is why I now Duck it. *nods*  Some of the ads and such were getting REALLY creepy based on my searches for researching rp's.

You know, there are ways you can change/remove the settings for what determines what the google ads show.

Damn, I'd have to say I've learned so many things and whenever I have no dictionary in hand to verify how to write a specific word, that is my go to place! ^.^

oh jesus, if google didn't exist i'd probably be useless. I use it as a dictionary, for research, for minor translations...all sorts

Well, I learned about this forum, and I think that's good enough for me.

Also, if I need to look something up, I whip out my phone and type something like this on the tiny phone keyboard:
hwo do i downlaod moer ram?
But thankfully google is smart enough to decipher what I'm saying.
