What’s the first things you do when you need information or help? You ask the internet. Question-and-answer sites have been around for decades, and at one point, Yahoo Answers was the internet’s most popular Q&A site. It holds over a decade’s worth of very… interesting queries and answers that’d often leave you more confused.
Sadly, its glory days are over, and it will be shut down forever on May 4 — 16 years since the site launched in 2005. No archives or anything! The site has been a meme goldmine for years now, and this is the end of a historic internet era. To commemorate it, here are some masterpieces from Yahoo Answers that the internet will always remember:

We wish it’s that easy too. To the rich, don’t be shy. Open your purses and let us have some.

Stale or not, a chip is still a chip. A guilty pleasure dusted with MSG and it’s good any day. Be like Thog – he’s a simple man.

Reminds me of my college days where one of my professors used to ask us to write a five-page handwritten essay about a vague topic I know nothing about. As long as I hit the page count, I’m out.

If there were a lot of Brandons on the internet then maybe it wouldn’t be such a chaotic place. I hope you’re having a nice day Brandon, wherever you are.
