As of today, there will be no longer any need for books or websites. Yesterday you may have turned to the local librarian, search engines or encyclopedias to have your queries answered.  No longer!  Facebook has now entered the question and answer business with a new application called Facebook Questions.   You’ve got questions?  You can ask Sherwin Williams, Andy Williams, and all of the other willing million Williamses all at once.

Some half-wit or geek named Jeeves is out there with more answers in his head than you have questions.  

Simple questions ranging from “Where can I get good rates on hotel rooms?” and “Who was the twenty-first president of the United States?” to more difficult ones like “What‘s the difference between an orange?” and “What am I here for?” will be asked and answered over and over again.    

Few questions will be out of bounds.   We can all find out the answers to those stupid bonus questions Netflix keeps asking.  Where have all the flowers gone?   Where is Waldo?   Why ask why?  How now brown cow?  Who let the dogs out?  Wherefore art thou Romeo?  Who cares?   Who asked you?  Got milk?

Question Authority will no longer be a statement.   There will be a million authorities and everyone will think he knows it all.    Like me.   If somebody on Facebook asks the question as to how to stop hiccoughs (or hiccups), I know the answer.     Drink water out of a glass through a paper towel as fast you can, without taking a breath.  Will it work?  No question about it.    Is it guaranteed?   Don’t ask.
