I read the other day that knowing things is becoming extinct. Why? Because of Google, that's why.
What's the difference between a turtle and a tortoise? Google it.
Who played Marianne in Gilligan's Island? Google it.
What the heck was Gilligan's Island? Google it. (You young punk. Get offa my lawn!)
No need to know anything? I wonder if it's true.
Anyway, since we are speaking of the Google, I also learned about this site and I am sharing it with you. (You are welcome!) You can enter any name and find out what Google thinks about that person.
I googled my real name, and Google claimed to know nothing about me. That's good, I think.
I googled Knittergran and this is what Googlism said:
Knittergran is not alone.
I don't know whether this means:
a. I am not alone because I have readers. Yay!
b. I am not alone because there is a stalker. Ummmm....
c. I am not alone, and neither is anyone, because, well, WE are not alone.
b and c are potentially creepy, except that it's only on the interwebs. Right?
But I guess, no matter what it means, it's reassuring (?) that I am not alone.
Mulder? Scully? Hello?
