What in the heck did we do before Google?
I was just surfing (before going back to reading, of course!) and ran across this image (source link is here) and noticed the prisoner's number was 24601. That seemed like a familiar set of numbers, but what was it? A zip code? The end of a phone number?
Googling the number combination seemed like a shot in the dark, but I had to know. Google came through! (Hint: it's not the zip code.)
So the question remains, how did we find answers to obscure questions B.G,?
