Google has now become a noun.

It has not made it to "The Urban Dictionary" yet, but a google is defined as the one person in every group that knows the most facts and/or is adept at, and willing to, google anything s/he does not know or is challenged as "untrue." In our family my oldest son is "the google" anytime we have a question from how to pronounce dour (do-er) to who was the 36th president (Lyndon B. Johnson) to what is the New Jersey state bird (Eastern Goldfinch) we all in unison look at him and say 'google.' When my daughter was in Israel last month her group had a 'female' google. We no longer wonder, we google. We no longer research, we goggle. We no longer problem solve, we goggle. Am I the only one who feels like they are living in a dystopian science fiction novel waiting for some one or something to 'turn off the power' and 'reset' the world?
