    I remember seeing this site a long time ago & I had forgot about it.

    http://lmgtfy.com/

    Just type in the question or what you are searching for & it creates a link to the google search for you.

    http://lmgtfy.com/?q=how+do+I+get+to+thegearpage.net?

    We could probably use this site to reply to about half of all TGP threads. Is this the ultimate snarky response tool for online forums?! ha ha ha

    Even better, it's on watches now! Every Internet watch comes with a free pair on 10X reading glasses too!

    One of my favorite sites to use on Facebook when people ask questions that they clearly could google for themselves.

    I want to use it on every pedal or speaker recommendation thread I see in pedal and amp forums that have been asked at least once weekly for the last decade. :anon but I feel I'd get pegged as to snarky.

    I use that link whenever a friend or even an acquaintance, asks me (by text, or facebook messenger, using their smartphone), where my band is playing, or when we're playing closeby.

    I also advertise by status update, several times a week on fb.

    We even have a free app for fecks sake.

    Personally, I want to get the most possible mileage out of the snark factor of using it. So often when someone misspells or misuses a word, I'll post a LMGTFY link for "define:[word]" and then embed that in a link. Usually with snarky text on top.

    Is that Googleable? Is that what we want to know? Or, uh, what was the question?
