    Default Google is the Answer

    Have you ever been asked a question that could be answered by a simple google search? Answer it with Let's use Google. This is based off of a similar script I saw some years ago, but now couldn't find. Demo. Use the create link at the bottom of the page to make a link.

    Isn't this just the same as let me google that for you? Your "create" link doesn't work for me (Fx or IE).

    Hmm, did they have a different domain before? How doesn't the create link work? Is it not giving the link after you type?

    I don't know, they do have a longer version of the domain: http://letmegooglethatforyou.com/

    Maybe this had a similar service but it's now down: http://www.shutupandgoogleit.com/

    Also, there's this site as well: http://justfuckinggoogleit.com/

    Yeah, it doesn't do anything at all.

    So when you type in the search box, nothing happens?

    Well, the search box works just like Google, with the search and feeling lucky buttons. The "create" button, on the other hand, does nothing. I'm guessing it's supposed to create the animation, like in your demo?

    What you do is click create and then type in the search box and look back at where it says create.

    Maybe I'm missing the point, but why go to your site instead of just going to google? I don't see the need for this script

    "Look back"? I tried everything, the "about" and the "create" buttons don't do anything. It doesn't matter if I click "create" before or after or both, it's just like normal Google.

    Well Master_script_maker's is a bit pointless since it doesn't work.
    Take a look at this one: http://www.lmgtfy.com/
    Imagine if some user in some forum starts a thread or maybe someone sends you an email to ask "How do I get a wamp server?"
    The first question that pops into your head is "Why don't you just bloody Google that?"
    So instead of answering by saying "Google it" or actually sending a link to a Google search results page, you can make them understand that they should always Google it first by sending them this link: http://www.lmgtfy.com/?q=wamp+server
    After that you can be sure they will Google it before asking a stupid question again.

    Edit: You can go to this site to see all the simple things people bother others with instead of just Googleing it: http://live.lmgtfy.com/
