Everybody and anybody who has an illness, a pain in the leg, a hurt somewhere, will use Google to find out what ails them. There is an inherent danger in that, but if you use a search engine that way, and believe the first result, then good luck to you, The Darwin Awards may need another category.

If by chance you do suffer a tooth ache, then a Google Search could pay dividends, at least for short term relief.

It says it on the Internet, it must be true!
I wonder what Britney Spears Googled that told her to shave her hair off? Poor girl.
