A is for Aardvark and for Answers
 
We’ve all participated in curry-hot debates at wine-glass strewn restaurant tables, heated discussions that yearn for conclusion like a teen with a Playboy magazine. Often ridiculous questions like, “if the moon exploded now, would you notice it instantly or would it take time to feel the effects?” or “do ants get drunk off spilt strawberry margarita?”, can descend a once civilised movie into the restaurant fight scene from “Dragon Tiger Gate”. What we need are answers.

Enter Aardvark, a new social networking tool (we know what you’re thinking, this should be reserved for 40 year olds living with their mother, but give it a chance) which aims to meet the world’s quirky queries by pooling the knowledge of friends and contacts. Register by telling the all-knowing, all-seeing Aardvark what you know (or think you know) about, be it food or football, and the system will trawl through your contacts looking for people who might be able to help with your chosen dilemma. However, realise this: the answer will be subjective and might only lead to bloodshed rather than love and forgiveness. If you, for example, want to know what a steak at Dakota Prime tastes like, do the smart thing and try one yourself.
 
In case you’re wondering, it would (obviously) take just over a second.
