Don't forget Webcrawler and AltaVista! And if you were really with it, you used Metacrawler, which searched all of them and returned the "best" results.

According to Wikipedia, Google didn't even exist until after I turned 18.

I thought that a t-bone was tenderloin and ribeye, when in fact it is tenderloin and strip loin.

I am a professional and have been mistaken on this subject for years. It was pretty distressing to discover

It was AltaVista for me. They were the future, man.

To stay on topic with the moist ball discussion, I just found out that KY Jelly is not a dessert. Kinda funny to think about how often I heard the name over the years and it always seemed to fit with the context.
You sure about that?

The guy with the triple name apparently.

I looked at a poster for Child 44 and noticed that it had Noomi Rapace and Tom Hardy. And I was like, they were also both in The Drop. So I thought, what else aside from Prometheus have they both been in, and looked them up on IMDB. Welp, only one of them were in Prometheus.

But seriously, this is not goon-prosopagnosia. I can tell the difference between Matt Damon and Leonardo DiCaprio, even in The Departed. He just seriously looks like Tom Hardy, one hundred percent.

I agree that he does resemble Tom Hardy, at first I thought it was him too.

Cloud Atlas was not written by David Mitchell. Well, it was, but not that David Mitchell. I read it for quite some time before wondering where the comedy came in.

Also, popular marijuana enthusiasts Cypress Hill once wrote "I ain't got no kind of love for a brother who comes to the party with no bud". It took me fifteen years to work out that they were not, in fact, talking about Budweiser, despite it being incredibly obvious to pretty much everyone who ever lived.

The lyric is "disconnected", not "disco naked". I've owned this album in three iterations for, like, three decades and I just loving worked that out. Christ.

In my defense, I've had hearing trouble since I was young and have a lot of trouble with lyrics in general. Still.
