People do not search for specific answers on a daily basis. I want/need to know something, anything I look it up. Like, I look up everything on google from homework help to computer building advice to "when does this nutella expire." google doesnt need to change anything on their search engine if thats what they are thinking, apart from this nonsense of changing abbreviations to words and such automatically, or including "similiar" words that I didnt type.

Person borrowing my computer: Oh my god! EEEW!
