Knowledge Generation Bureau

Anyone else indulge a bit into their curiosity and send a question KGB’s way? I decided to give it a try last night, and it was pretty horrendible. My conversation with them went like this:

Dr. FruitPie: What rifles were used by the snipers (not the spotters) in which teams in Top Sniper II?

Knowledge Generation Bureau: It is the M1 Garand Rifle. --kgb_let us help with tips & cheats on your fave games!

DFP: No, “it” isn’t.

KGB: We believe the rifle could be the M110 SASS rifle! kgb_team

I wasn’t expecting anything incredible, but I did expect something more than a slightly improved SmarterChild. Anyone else somewhat disappointed in this thing you didn’t even really have any big expectations for in the first place?

Their commercials are on TV fairly often.

Can you ask them questions that are useful? Like: “What should i say to this cop that just pulled me over for speeding while smoking a fatty?”

Now I’m curious and I have to try. You owe me $.99.

Not everybody has the same TV commercials you do. :^P

How do you use it? Do you have to get a subscription? If I send a text first, will they automatically start charging me like a fee every month if I don’t cancel?

I’m down to have some random ass questions answered if it’s just 99 cents with no strings attached.

Well, I haven’t been butt raped with extra charges. Yet, anyways. They made no mention of monthly fees and I’ve only gotten as many answers back as questions I’ve sent them, so I would imagine it’s on the up ‘n’ up.

They make this free answer service called google.

Such questions are not worth asking.

Isn’t the name “knowledge generation bureau” a little misleading? I don’t feel like they’re actually generating knowledge, just retrieving it.
oh well KRB doesn’t sound as cool I guess…

Yeah, I thought this was going to be about some weird 1984 stuff.

I asked a question they couldn’t answer.

What was it??

Could an african swallow carry a coconut?

I asked them what’s better, waffles or pancakes?

Lol, naw even though I should’ve. I asked who first discovered superbounces in the halo series. I’ve always wondered, and neither google, yahoo answers, nor the kgb knows.
