Anyone need a bit of respite from the election? Here’s a little story to distract you for a brief moment… and I really do mean… little. In the grand scheme of the world.
One night back in 2007, and devoid of any other ideas for entertainment, I said to Steve, “Tell me something to ask Google and I’ll Google it.”
After a moment’s pause from both of us and a smirk tripping across his face, I confirmed with a withered look that, yes, I KNOW he knows everything and there was surely nothing he would need to Google… But could we just do it for amusement’s sake anyway. Maybe he could pretend not to know the answer to something? Just to humour me?
So he says, “Okay, Google this: Does Steve know everything” – not that he’s not modest or anything *cough from silent crowd*. He obviously just wanted to ensure Google was up to speed with his vast knowledge of…. well, useless general knowledge shit, basically. I’m down with that.
So I did. I typed it in, exactly like that. Just to rise to the challenge and prove him wrong.
And here – commiserations accepted now, please and thankyou – is a screen shot of the single, solitary search result that was returned on an otherwise blank page:
I mean, how is that even helpful? Naturally, Steve found this hysterically funny. I told him I wasn’t playing anymore.
This must’ve been before the internet exploded because the search term brings up something far more furnished these days…. seems he knows a LOT more in 2013.
As you were.
