It’s never going to sink in is it? ARGHHHHHH!!!!!

I should really just submit and resign myself that there are people that no matter what you do or say or how many times it’s repeated, they will refuse to use a search engine.

Need to get me one of those LMGTFY T Shirts, baseball caps and whatever other products they come up with.  If they have a car wrap I’ll buy one of those too.

Hi Joey

Did I miss the posting of One Billion Rising on GMG?  Coming up on FRIDAY FEB 14. Peeps looking on GMG but haven’t seen it yet!

Thnx so much!
Name Removed , LMHC

Response:

No it was posted three times.  a search would provide the links

there is a search box and there is also google.

might i suggest the search terms one billion rising and goodmorninggloucester.

Here are the results 

There are no less than 5 results.

Now the thing that really tends to get me going more than having to point out that search engines exists is that when you suggest that search engines exist to most people, they seem genuinely indignant and feel like you are singling them out for being a dummy.

I should note that this is not the case with the person who sent me this email who I am sure is a very lovely person.

This note to those who refuse to use search engines –

GOOGLE- PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD- TAKE ONE MINUTE OF YOUR LIFE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO POINT YOUR BROWSER IN THE DIRECTION OF GOOGLE AND TYPE IN YOUR SEARCH QUERY.

WEBMASTERS AROUND THE GLOBE WILL REJOICE- THE WORLD WILL BE A BETTER PLACE!

I MAY PLAN MY OWN ONE BILLION RISING EVENT TO RAISE AWARENESS OF PEOPLE WHO REFUSE TO USE SEARCH ENGINES.

*note: If this email was a joke in response to last week’s post linked below then I hope you burn in hell.

How much could I charge for a seminar to teach people how to look for things on the internet using a search engine?

    Another LMFAO!!!
    I tend to Google everything. Even when I’m watching the Bachelor with my wife I Google all the dirt on Juan Pablo on my iPhone. Watching movies? Go to IMBd to find out who all the actors are. Anyway I use Dog Pile for a lot of my web searches. It searches a bunch of search engines all at the same time and tends to clear out the “Prefered” Google returns at the top of the page. Never-the-less being the smartass that I am I took your advice and Googled “Anything. Anything at all. Seriously. Just type it here.” and got these returns. Interesting…..

  5. Hi Joey, I have been search-button “Googling” for the WICKED TUNER promo that Barry Stacks told me he submitted via email several times. The last time was on April 2, 2014, and I simply cannot find the article. Should I tell him to resubmit? Help! All Googled Out, Paige
