Want to be Helpful - But Feeling a Little Snarky?

Last Update: October 04, 2015

The word "helpful" is self explanatory - but "snarky"? The Urban Dictionary defines snarky as

A witty mannerism, personality, or behavior that is a combination of sarcasm and cynicism. Usually accepted as a complimentary term. Snark is sometimes mistaken for a snotty or arrogant attitude.
"Her snarky remarks had half the room on the floor laughing and the other half ready to walk out."

Hi Tom,

Consider the possibilities - giving someone a helping hand, while simultaneously giving them a gentle slap with the other!

lol - Dennis this is mint! I bet nearly everyone has felt that way at least once when someone asked a question.

You know what though ... I ask a lot of questions even knowing I can use Google or the WA search function (just realized this a few days ago and I've been here since January). I just don't know why I never think to do that when I go through the process of asking the question. no that is phenomenon.

Have you ever pressed the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button under Google? I've always wondered what it does.

ROCK ON!

Greetings Eric!

Google has all kinds of silliness available - some of which involves the "I'm feeling lucky" button.

For example, go to the Google search and type Google Gravity. Click on "I'm Feeling lucky".

Enjoy!
