Let me Google that for you

Typically, forum posters use LMGTFY to signal that your "simple" question has "wasted" their time. ("Why, oh why, would you ask questions on an Internet forum?," they will cry.) Those who are feeling generous may follow up LMGTFY with a link to related Google search results. Those who are feeling saucy will instead include a link to LMGTFY.com - a website that teaches you how to Google things.
