In case you weren’t worried about Thanksgiving, consider this: Right now, thousands of people are attempting to cook turkey, armed only with suggestions from Google.
It’s a frightening thought.
Whenever I think that the people around me have a good handle on what is going on, I check their Google histories. Google suggestions show our collective seamy underbelly, revealing all the questions we are too ashamed to ask the people around us.
And it’s even more frightening when you see what Google says people are most likely to be searching for.
So before you sit down, it might be a good idea to ask for your host’s Google history. Especially if he says you’re having vegetarian turkey that seems “perfectly good.”
