Probably for the best, what with riding on those dirty Northern Rail trains while borrowing the Nokia from the Nottingham Forest supporter sitting next me so I can call the Northern Rock call center and increase my donation to Nothumbria University's Bio department for their cutting edge research into the norovirus. It's only a matter of time before I catch something nasty..... especially from the Nottingham Forest supporter.

This is a very fun game.If I google "Why is" the fifth suggestion is "Why is my poop green" and I'm pretty sure I've never googled this before.

I searched norovirus and saw ZERO google ads but did learn that one should never store reusable grocery bags in the bathroom.

I'm not sure what it is about my geographical location which means I'm more likely to have green poop...... something in the water maybe?...... Seventh is "Why is my period late?" - Again, scary how accurate Google is. I've been waiting for nearly 30 years now and still nothing.

Number five was "why are manhole covers round" which seems to continue on the poop theme in a vague way.

Number five was "why are manhole covers round" which seems to continue on the poop theme in a vague way.I got the manhole covers question really high up, too. It is a legendary McKinsey interview question from the late 80's/early 90's, and I specifically recall creating a physical model to convince a skeptical fellow quant that a triangular manhole cover would be susceptible to falling into the manhole (aside from its non-rollable quality). Needless to say, we had been drinking at the time...
