What's even more frightening is the cartoon from 3/17
in which Jeremy said that he was busy doing research
for a history paper due the next day. His mother muses
"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.*

* Google (v) = "to search for information on the
Internet, esp. using the Google search engine."

Millennium™ Dictionary of English, Preview Edition (v
