Brian wasn’t good with other people’s stupidity. He’d roll his eyeballs on hearing they got tongue-tied trying to talk to a search engine. Brian knew the engines were now so clever they practically read your mind.
But some people still got stuck between thought and word. Brian himself had once asked the engine to find the “hook thing that looks like a question mark” and the engine located it in a jiff. So Brian’s advice to those who looked stumped by the engine’s empty grey strip was, “Tell it exactly what you’re thinking.”
He’d live to regret that one day.
