Yep that’s right, Google has unofficially offed your Grandma. What? There was a study done a few years back to find the regions of the world that have the largest population of persons over 100. They then sent persons to those areas to log things like diet, living conditions, race, and social status.
The deciding factor ended up being social status. Old people were the center of the village or town. Night and day people would come visit them and ask them questions. These guys are the original Google. If you needed to know what to do then you asked the oldest person you could find. The older you were the more you’ve seen and the more you know.
So why did Google kill your Grandma? If she’s alive there may still be time to save her. Old people live only when they have a reason to live. If they are needed, they will find a way to stick around. So what happens if we don’t need them for anything? If we now find all our answers on Google or Yahoo, or Bing then what do we need there old shriveled up leather heads for? Not much.
So find a reason to love your Nana, Grandma, Grandpa, or Papaw. Pretend you love the smell of Moth Balls and Urine. (hey don’t get mad at me, you know it’s the truth) Ask them questions…then Google it later to find the real answer. I know it’s double data entry, but your Grandparents lives are at stake here people.
