The Oracle of Stupid

Someone at work pointed this out. You can ask the magic box any question, and this is the best we can come up with.

Reproduce: go to Google and start typing a question. Google will start giving you suggestions that are relevant and popular. Best, try to imagine who would have searched for that and why. Sometimes it is tragically obvious, sometimes it is not.

  • is there
  • are there
  • who was
  • why
  • why is
One word of warning: "can" and "could" questions seem to be dominated by questions about pregnancy...
