Search engine interface for dead / living information exchange
I suspect that the reason ghosts do so much random
wandering about is because they simply can't find what it
is they're looking for in a timely fashion. Can you
imagine being dead and being haunted by the desire to
look up exactly what model of car it was that ran you
over in Wikipedia, but
lacking the ability to interface
with a search engine without standing in a long queue to
bother some overworked spiritual caseworker medium or
available paranoid schizophrentic? With so few qualified
media, bandwidth is always a problem.
The output of this Ouija board is connected directly to
the Google search engine, and serves as Google's first
direct link to the deceased internet. Other rumored
ghastly Google projects include BooWhoWhere, a lookup
connection for Ouija board users to be able to track the
haunting addresses of their desired dead contacts, and
Zoogle, the search engine used by the dead and undead
to search the NetherWorldWeb, as well as a more direct
link between Zoogle and Google with a much larger
bandwidth than your toaster oven.
||I like where this is going. It's just that at the rate Ouija boards spell out letters you are going to have some serious bandwidth limitations.
||Oh Yeah! A Ouija board touchscreen app would also be most excellent.
||Over there, Bro', in the long queue.
