Bad choice


I talk to people on the phone all day at work, walking them through various Computer Things.  Yesterday, while the customer’s internet connection was moving slowly and we were waiting for the page to pull up, she decided to make small talk.  She asked me if I’d seen the pictures of the coyote that got hit by the racecar and stuck in the grill – apparently, it’s some amazing “It” email forward out in circulation.

I told her that no, I am out of touch these days.  I don’t even know important things – like if the Taylors are dating – let alone the fate of would-be road-kill.  I am the least “in the know” person around.

So she told me to Google it – to Google “coyote hit by car” – because the pictures are incredible.

Perhaps this goes without saying, and should have been obvious from the start, but THAT WAS THE WORST IDEA EVER AND DON’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU.

    Whenever someone tells you to do a Google Image Search, DON’T DO IT.

    Google image can go some VERY bad places. And if there’s something horrifying, my boyfriend will accidetally find it and then go, “Why, God, WHY DO I CLICK ON LINKS?” And then he says, “I can’t believe I looked at that! It burned my retinas! Come look!”

    This is like when people say “oh, trust me, YOU DONT WANT TO KNOW.” and you immediately really really want to know.
