  "Ah, research! When I think of the hours I spent at
  the library when I was your age..." Jeremy then says
  "Done!," turns around and asks "Wait...you went to a
  library?"

  I actually thought the strip's language was a little
  stilted when he asked for the URL. I thought for sure
  he would ask for the name of the article and just
  google it.*
