Default Is there anything you cannot find on the web?

Just curious, is there anything (other than personal "stuff" and even then !!) you cannot find out on the web. Recent debates which the web has solved for us in our house are :-

How do toilets "really" work? (we had one "run on" and flood our house and I couldn't understand why).

What's a good traditional Fish and Chip "batter" recipe.

How much lower is our local lake than normal ?

What was the theme tune to "on the buses"

What were the names of the fireman in "trumpton"

All I had was a bar code on a special piece of pipe that no-one seemed to stock. I searched for the number on the bar code and found the suppliers, the manufacturers and got good prices...

Are Grapes "really" good for you (maybe).

Scary isn't it... What the heck did we do before the net

Nope. It's all there. One exception, the Keen Kutter Model K122G gear driven antique meat grinder I was trying to research before I sold it on Ebay!:curse: It must the only one in existence...

Bad moustaches, perms, pizza delivery boys and pubic hair. They actually had a plot too, those were the days

Someone told me about internet porn - unfortunately, after getting excited about being able to have electronic versions of my laminated copies of 'razzle', i've been unable to find anything

I've come to believe that so-called "internet porn" is a myth. I have been unable to locate any myself.
