How many questions have you asked the collective that could have been answered by Google?
I see a lot of questions that could have been answered by Google. Did you search for those questions on Google (it doesn’t actually have to be Google, it could be Yahoo or otherwise) before consulting the collective?
I have asked one question so far that I did Google, couldn’t find my answer, and then asked the collective. Luckily someone else’s Google powers were superior and they found the answer I was looking for.
