• Marathoners, Runners and Google Autofill

    Everyone uses Google right? Yahoo or Bing, the only reason you use those search engines is to search for Google. If you have used Google, you've probably noticed the Google autofill feature. It tries to predict what you are searching for and the algorithm is based on popular phrases that have been previously searched. Now I've had a few laughs with Google autofill before, but a recent episode of Tosh.0 got me thinking if we could have a few laughs using running search phrases.

    Why do marathoners poop themselves?

    This guy gave runners all over the world a bad name when he crapped himself during a race, ever since that photo came out, people all over the world think marathoners poop themselves during the race. I've only seen two runners in my life "poop themselves" both were girls and both times were in college at a track meet. Prior to that photo, I thought it only happened to women. Since then I have vowed if I ever thought the probability of me crapping myself during a race was high, I will stop. Those Internet photos last a lifetime.
