I propose a word that means "you have asked a question to which you could
have the answer within seconds if you merely use your search engine." This
word might be used a lot, so let us have a single syllable word, which
returns exactly *no* hits when googled (when googled upon?). I found after
about 20 tries: dwoorb. (What is the shortest easily pronounceable word
that returns zero google hits?)
Now when someone posts a googlable question, extropians who are hip might
merely reply dwoorb. I dwoorbed myself by asking PJ about google books. I
must remember I am living in 2007 and stop all this reprehensible dwoorbing.
Very soon google will reference dwoorb to this post, therefore asking the
definition of dwoorb creates a cool self-referencing dwoorb. One can
imagine finding some future archive entry:

Dwoorb, you silly goof, dwoorb!
