If you went to elementary or high school and actually learned something, you wouldn't need google for this... <_<

nice suri, but google, you, me, int, and maybe 1 other person around here gets this ;)

This is h.com. I have no doubt that a substantial proportion of the membership gets it.

This is google being "smart" because it tries to give you info ASAP if it's sure it knows what you want (or highly confident). If you say "What is 100 pesos worth in dollars" isn't useful if you just see the conversion? That means Google knows enough about what you asked to answer the question for you. Not to just send you to a page where you'd have to do more clicking.

It's more than being smart though. It's also a bit paternalistic. If you want to commit suicide, Google won't just tell you how to do it, it sends you to a suicide prevention hotline.

BTW I googled how to build a bomb, and fully expected google to sic the FBI on me. Hasn't happened yet. :p

Yes, that was Xi's OP.
Google is worried about you.

I did...

Me too (and I'm not even in the computer field...)
