Re: Unintended consequences
I'd call you out for septics, but it works well either way :)
Google - the engine - is a tool. Put a request on the line and it returns what it can find. Now sure, some of those results are going to be gamified, but if you lack the basic intelligence to weigh metrics based on it's internal logic and center of basis, then you're never going to know the truth because you don't know how to recognize it when you see it.
That's ok. I'm sure the media can feed you their version of the truth, which often happens to be skewed to their own political agenda and rarely bare factual basis. If that's your decision, go ahead. Just don't expect to find many intelligent people that agree with you.
