How reliable is a Google search? Um …

Try this: Type “photosynthesis” into Google.

Check out the first result.

And blush.

I was certainly skeptical when I saw an image similar to this on Reddit.

So I did my own Google search.

You can see what I saw.

I assume it’s a cached page. Wikipedia has fixed the stupidity, and I’m sure that Google will soon. But still …

It’s a reminder of how dumb Google – or any Internet entry – is unless you, the user, put your brainpower into it.

As the headline on the Reddit post said, “I read it on the Internet, so it must be true….”

Let’s hope not.
