Let me google that for you

Let me google that for you

LMGTFY is this. It is the answer given to someone who, foolishly, has posted a question to a forum without searching Google for the answer first. LMGTFY’s mission is to “organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible for people who still don’t know how to use Google.” And that’s huge, because before this site was created I had to LITERALLY Google things for people, or direct them to just f***ing google it (which frankly is a bit harsh). And it’s actually more diverse than you might think — I use LMGTFY as a quick shortcut to access Google, while others simply Google “let me Google that for you” to find the site, and then use it. Either way, game changer. Enter a search term, click the Google Search button, and a link appears that you can copy, paste and send to your friend. When they click the link, an animation displays the complicated process of searching Google for information, and then directs the user to the actual search results page from Google.
Snarky? Yes. However, the time the user is forced to study the search term you used, they might pick up a trick or two in keyword syntax, search operators, literal strings and the like. After all, give a man an answer, and he’ll come back tomorrow asking for more. Teach a man to search Google, and you’ll have to offer tech support when he ends up downloading malware while cruising shadier purveyors of adult entertainment and file sharing software.
