    mean_photoshopOh boy, The Internet’s can be so mean to people.

    Have you ever experienced this situation: you ask a serious question in an online forum and all you get is answers like:

    “Look it up on Google”
    “See other threads”
    “I have had that same question and never found an answer!”
    “That is a stupid question!”

    Stuff like that can really ruin your day.

    The picture on the right here is a screenshot from a forum where this particular situation plays out in a hilarious way. I couldn’t help but feel really sorry for the person making the first request.

    But the creative answers were just too damned funny. Enjoy!
