Image via WikipediaI discovered Google Silences yesterday. What’s a Google Silence? It’s when you’re having a big fat old argument with a colleague that’s degenerated from debating solid, intelligent, factually based arguments into ‘Is so!’, ‘Isn’t so!’.
It's at this point that the person you’re arguing with goes suddenly and terribly quiet.
Because they’re Googling the topic you’re arguing. A Google Silence is followed by two possible outcomes.
“Ha! I OWN you, punk!”
“This is a stupid argument anyway and I think we should move on.”
