Thank you for being your Mythical best.

I'm pretty excited about this game we're about to play.

I wanna reward you for sticking with us.

- Reward. - And coming over to the More.

Yeah, so basically what we're gonna do

is we have some questions on these cars,

and they are questions that are commonly asked of Google.

- Uh-huh. - And, uh,

but we're not going to use Google.

I'm gonna ask Link questions. He's gonna ask me questions.

And you have to see if you have this information

in your own brain,

and you don't have to result to the internet.

Uh, "result"? Resort.

And the funny thing is

is that this is something that I feel like, as a culture,

we've definitely gotten somewhat stupider.

- Yeah. - I think we've gotten smarter in certain ways,

but there's absolutely no doubt

we've gotten stupider in some ways

because you don't have to retain this information

if you've got an internet connection.

So how stupid are we

is really the question that we're going to answer right now.

- So I'm gonna start. - Okay.

I'm gonna ask you a question.

As I ask the question--

and by the way, we pulled these questions

from a list of the 1,000 most asked questions

on Google

from a site called

You know

So who knows how legit this is.

I've never heard of

but this first question that I'm gonna ask you

is ranked the 395th most asked question

on Google.

- Man, I-- - As of recently.

I just realize I'm so nervous right now

because I don't feel like I--

I feel like every time somebody asks me a question,

I go to my phone.

So as I ask you the question,

I'm going to be typing it into Google,

and then hitting enter.

Okay. So you have to blurt out the answer...

No. I'm not gonna try to go faster than you.

I'm just gonna try to say the thing that comes to mind.

You have to beat Google.

You have to be faster than Google.

- Okay. - Let's just try it this way.

I didn't know that was-- yeah, sure.

What's the question?

How old is Drake?

- 34. - Question mark, enter.

- 34. - You said 34.

- 31. - Ooh, sorry, Drake.

You did beat Google in giving an answer,

so points for that.

He is 31 years old, as of today.

But I was-- but--

- October. - It's not his birthday, though.

October 24th, 1986 is his birthday.

Okay, all right, Link.

Here's a question for you.

When did the Titanic sink?

- 1892. - 1912.

Hey, 20 years off isn't bad.

- That wasn't bad. - I mean, 20--

- Give or take 20 years. - And I did--

And did I say my answer before Google gave you one?

- No. - Oh, so no points at all.

I don't wanna do that.

If you're saying an answer, I'm not gonna cut you off.

Yeah, yeah, sure, then after the fact, I wanna know

if I at least gave an educated answer

within the same timing.

When I did "When did the Titanic," then "sink" came up,

and I just hit that, and then that--

- Can't do that. - Can't do that?

You can't use autocomplete.

Okay. All right, new rule.

( clears throat )

So far we're 0 for 0.

0 for 1 each.

0 for 2 total.

I'm also doing proper capitalization.

Okay, Google cares about that.

Okay, ready?

How many minutes in a day?

60, 300, uh-- 3600?

No-- No--

You said 3600. The answer is...


Yeah, 'cause it's 60 x 24.

You don't have to tell me. I have Google.

I couldn't have done that math in my head anyway.

- 1440 minutes in a day. - We're so good.

All right, ask me another one.

I'm gonna get this one.

Okay, what does DNA stand for?

"Deo-nucleide enacious."

Say again?

"Deo-nu-nucleide enacious."

It is "deoxyribu"--

deo-- deoxyribonucleic acid.

Deoxyribonucleic acid.

Yeah, that-- You almost said that.

Ribonucleic acid.

You said "enacious" at the end of yours?

I was close.

Didn't get that one.

The computers are...

both: Smarter than us.

That's what we're learning, kids.

Trust the computers.

I think you can get this one.

When is Father's Day?

Uh, May... 8th? I don't know.

June 17th.


What do you mean, really? Yeah.

Hold on. Is it always on the 17th?

Well, in 2018 is June 17th.

- What is-- Is it Sunday? - But I think it's on a Sunday.

Is it, like, the second Sunday, the third Sunday in June?

How is Father's Day determined?

In 1966-- How is Father's Day determined? Do you know that?

Third Sunday in June in 1966 they came up with that.

- In 1966 President Lyndon B.-- - both: Johnson.

...issued the first Presidential proclamation

- honoring... - Beatin' Google left and right.

...fathers, designating the third Sunday in...

both: June.

- - both: Father's Day.

Who needs Google?

Six years later the day was made a permanent national holiday

when President Nixon signed it into law in 1972.

Okay, this is-- Now, if you don't get this--

Gosh, I should've kept my eyes open.

If you don't get this one,

you will live in shame forever.

Oh, crap.



How many "Star Wars" movies are there?

D-D-S-- eight.

Nine. They keep growing.


Including what?

That's just a number that comes up, is ten.

Okay, well, it doesn't even matter if it's right.

Does that include "Solo"?


Well, I was wrong 'cause I was low anyway.

But it's the first three, then the next three,

and then there's three that have already happened,

and there's one that's coming in summer,

so that's ten.

Right? Is that how the math is done?

That sounds right to me.

Well, who named their kid Lando?

But it's growing. It's growing.

I named my kid Lando so I wouldn't have to actually know everything about Star Wars.

Be like, "Whoa, back off."

Um, all right, got another one for you.

( clears throat )

Man, I you were gonna get that one, man.

What does RSVP stand for?

Return request--

Requested? Please?


Hold on. Return requested please?

Return requested very much, please?

Répondez s'il vous plaît. Uh, s'il vous--

- Please respond. - Respond, please.

- I-- Uh-- - No, but it's French. I didn't get it.

It's French but you did the translation, which was an added computation.

- That's pretty good. - I'm better than Google?

- You're better than Google. - I knew it.

Respon-- Please respond.

Répondez s'il vous plaît.

I'm doing another one which I feel like you will get.

How-- Whoops, I have to delete the previous one. Sorry.

How do you say "I love you"

- in French. - Je t'aime.

- You got it. You beat it. Je t'aime. - Yes!

- I beat Google! - All right, Link got one.

I was in the French mind state, and I nailed it.

- Okay. - All right, I got another one for you.

Why do we yawn--

I misspelled "yawn." I'm misspelling "yawn."

You have a chance.

To get more air. Oxygen.

"To get more air," he says.

Oxygen depletion.

According to /en/kids/yawn.html,

one is that when we are bored or tired,

we just don't breathe as deeply as we usually do.

Wait, I think when they're saying, one, they don't know for sure, but these are theories.

"As this theory goes, our bodies take in less oxygen because our breathing was slowed.

- Therefore, yawning helps us bring more oxygen..." - Get more oxygen.

"...into the blood"

- Hey, I beat Google! - "...and move more carbon dioxide..."

into the... You got it.

I'm a little under the weather. I don't wanna.

I appreciate that.

I think I sneezed into my hand.

Give me another one. Let's go. Let's go rapid.

All right, you're gonna get this one.

How to become famous.

Uh, YouTube.

It's actually, "1. Decide how famous you want to be."

- Check. Very famous. - "2. Create a unique solution to a problem.

- 3"-- - Is this--

- WikiHow - WikiHow.

"Stand out from other people.

4. Audition for a reality show."


"5. Be generous in a unique way."

Oh, that's cool.

"6. Work on a world record."

Or "7. Post a silly video."

Who would do that?

So I was right.

You finally got to seven.

How do you post a video, silly video?

On YouTube.

Right. I got that one right, too.

Okay, I'll give you a point on that one.

How to tell

if a girl likes you.

If she...

breathes heavy.

- Too late. - And yawns.

- Okay. Okay. - If she yawns in your presence.

This is also wikiHow.

"Method 1. Understanding body language..."

"Look at her stance.

Pay attention to eye contact.

Take context into account.

Notice if she touches you or tries to get closer.

Pay attention to whether she randomly hugs you."

- What about the breathing? - "See if she mirrors your moves."

Yep, what about the breathing?

"Notice if she's playing with her hair."

There's more items but you weren't right so far,

so the first seven.

I think the moral of the story is--

- I wanna give you one more. - Okay.

- You want one more from me? - Sure. You know.

Okay, last one.

This is number 320, most asked question on Google,

according to Plug.

Why are cats afraid

of cucumbers?

Because they're stupid and evil.

And they think they're snakes.

Apparently cats are afraid of cucumbers.

Oh, yeah.

According to

It just comes up in Google.

It would "be that cats would be afraid of anything that was able to sneak up on them like that.

Meanwhile, Jill Goldman, a certified animal behaviorist,

told National Geographic that it's possible that cats' first instinct

is to assume that the cucumber is a snake,

which can be a deadly predator."

See, I get a point because they're stupid and evil.

But I gotta Google, "Are cats afraid of cucumbers?"

Oh, yeah, just watch a video.

Watch the first video that comes up. You've not seen that?

- I've never seen it. - Oh, gosh,

you haven't seen the cats vs. cucumber compilation?

I'll be watching that for the rest of the day.

We'll see you guys later on.

We're about to have some fun.
