“Go ahead and type in “is google ga,” and you will find out that fewer people are asking whether Google is gaining a monopoly on the world’s information than are asking whether Google is gay. John, Google is a genderless website that, hopefully, has never had a thought, much less a feeling of romantic longing. And thus, we can all assume that Google is not gay.” – al-jinni

I hope I’m not the only one who found that funny.

But that’s not the point of this post. I know you wish it was, but alas, it is not.  (Read that last sentence of mine in a British accent. I did.)

I typed in “Why is” in Google and the first endings to that that came up were – “Why is the sky blue”, “Why is a raven like a writing desk”, “Why is my poop green”, “Why is facebook down”. If that doesn’t give you a good look at what’s going on in the Google commoners lives, that I’m not sure what will.

On a serious note though, isn’t that..amazing? You could type in anything into this one little thing that can sit on your lap or on a desk in front of you and get any answer you may have answered. And if it isn’t already answered (doubt that any answer you may have isn’t already answered though) then you can get it answered so quickly (i.e. Yahoo! Answers). And to think that say. fifty=one-hundred years ago they couldn’t do that and they actually had to ask people why their poop is green or why a raven is like a writing desk.  What would we do without technology.
