My computer came down with a trojan horse a couple days ago. Before I posted here on BC I did a Google search for the file name.
There was nothing. One of the first times I did a Google search and it found zero.

I posted here and almost instantly my post poped up on Google under the name of the file. Blew my mind that Google could find that info that quickly. Makes me wonder how much I don't know.

This really is a double edged sword.

If Google keeps everything including searches and who does them; imagine what the aliens could do with that info or maybe the patriot actors.
