This reminds me of Dave Gorman's show on Dave

|Dave Gorman is a British comedian and he currently has a show on the channel Dave which looks at areas of modern life.
In one show he was looking at the use of the internet and he found on Yahoo Answers the following question "How many days in a leap year?".
Dave Gorman had 2 questions...
1. Who doesn't know that there are 366 days in a leap year and 2. Who has managed to get to Yahoo Answers to ask a question without knowing Google exists.
Enter that question into Google and the answer appears right at the top as opposed to using Yahoo Answers where you have to keep going back to see if anyone has answered your question.
In response to the article I would say the techies have gone nowhere. They are still here and know full well the meaning of RAM but there are also lots of non-techies. The difference it non-techies are now infringing on the technical world.
Dave Gorman found some other bizarre questions on Yahoo Answers but I couldn't find them. However I did find this rather bizarre question
"Who showers who on a leap year's valentines day?".
However after reading the actual context of the question it wasn't quite as bizarre as I had hoped it would be.
