"The past year, A lot of people have tuned into the Internet for answers to questions in the early days of the Internet forums like Ask Jeeves and Yahoo! Answers were popular resources. NBC's Mike Dabrowski has more on the end of an era for a resource that was once used by many curious Web surfers. Unlike posting questions to a Facebook group or starting a poll on Twitter, Yahoo answers was almost completely unregulated. Anyone could anonymously post whatever they had on their minds. And some people who posted to Yahoo answers had a lot on their minds. Do you think NASA invented thunderstorms to cover up the sound of space battles? That's Internet culture reporter Ryan Broderick. Other examples of questions that showed up on Yahoo answers ranged from the historical Did dragons live before, during or after dinosaurs to the hopelessly romantic ladies? I bring my guitar almost everywhere to impress women. Does this work? They weren't afraid to get esoteric either. If I eat myself what I become twice as big or turn to the platform for Tech support. How do I turn off caps Lock the comical Q and A's were so pervasive on Yahoo answers that they gave rise to a cottage industry of podcasts and YouTube series that celebrated the most outlandish posts are advice should never be followed as a big part of the show. Travis McElroy is one of the three McElroy brothers. The others are Justin and Griffin. Together. They host a comedy advice podcast called My Brother, My Brother and Me Every episode they spotlight some of the strangest Yahoo answers they can find. And they found a lot. What are some exercises that don't give you yucky, muscular. McElroy says. In the decade, they've been reading questions on the platform. They've noticed. Some tracks a lot of questions about Vaping a lot of questions about ghosts. In a decision that several Twitter users compared to the burning of the library of Alexandria, Yahoo announced that it would be shutting down answers, thus deleting the platforms entire backlog. Yeah, who says the platform has been declining in popularity in recent years? Here's Broderick Yahoo has sort of made a habit of doing this, You know, inventing these things that become part of the way we think of the Internet and then when they don't make money They disappear them. But he says the mark it leaves on Internet culture is unquestionable. We need these quirky things, because that's what makes the Internet a fun place. Yahoo answers. Disappearance also leaves a void for all the people who have made a living off the content posted there. Here's McElroy again. I don't know that we could one for one replace, she says. Ultimately, the real loss is all those curious posters who will now have to go unanswered. There's a part of me that like is sad for what it means for our show, but More than that. I'm sad for the Yahoo answers community. I'm Mike de Bosque. ABC News Come on news time. 7 39 Sports is that Has it been a while since you flip that.
