Favorite Free Stuff -- GOOGLE

Today's blog is also kind of a rant... but some of you might find it amusing.   LOL

I hear a lot of people asking the most ridiculous questions and I cringe.  OK, I used to be a teacher & I'm SUPPOSED to think "There's no such thing as a dumb question." or "The only dumb question is the one you never ask." but I'm far to annoyed by said dumb questions to be that nice.  LOL

First of all, that little rectangle at the top of your open internet window is called a "search box".  GOOGLE IT.  You can pretty much find the answer to ANY QUESTION IMAGINABLE that way.  All of life's mysteries explained... AND you can avoid looking like a moron.

Seriously, I have this acquaintance who asks "What's That??" EVERY SINGLE TIME someone types something on FB.  It goes a lot like this: 

Susan:  I just bought a new cardigan pattern today.
Most people:  Nice!
Dumbass:  What's a cardigan?
Me:  Google it.

Jenny:  I wish I had a Roomba so I never had to vacuum again.
Most people:  Me too.
Dumbass:  What's a Roomba?
Me:  Google it.

Danyel:  I can correctly spell "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious".
Most people:  LOL
Dumbass:  How did you get so smart?
Me:  I use Google.  ;)

Google is your friend.  Use him. :)  Thank you. Rant over.
