It’s easy to take the common Google search for granted, but if you really think about it, you might appreciate it for what it truly is: crazy superhero magic.
Just by typing a few words, a single person can achieve near-instantaneous access to all of the world’s collected information. Want to know the capital of Moldova? (It’s Chisinau.)
