Awhile back, just for kicks, I went on to Google and typed the opening words to questions--who, what, when, where, why, and how--into the search bar. I wanted to see what Google's top "suggestion" to complete the question would be. Tonight, feeling at a loss for a post topic, I did this again.
As was the case last time, typing "Why" prompted Google to suggest "is the sky blue?" This time around, "What" generated--unsurprisingly--"does the fox say?" And "Who" led to "should I start?"--a nod to the ubiquity of fantasy football leagues.
I was intrigued, though, by the suggestions for "Where," "When," and "Who":
Where am I?
When is my birthday?
How old am I?
I can only conclude that Google users have lately suffered an inordinate amount of head trauma.
