    Nick Statt, writing for The Verge:

    Yahoo Answers, one of the longest-running and most storied web Q&A platforms in the history of the internet, is shutting down on May 4th. That’s the day the Yahoo Answers website will start redirecting to the Yahoo homepage, and all of the platform’s archives will apparently cease to exist. The platform has been operating since 2005, and in the years since its relevance as a meme haven has remained intact while its practicality as a forum has waned during the rise of Reddit, Quora, and other competing internet hangouts.

    But where else can I find very unhelpful but incredibly funny answers to questions I never had.

    Dear Yahoo Answers,

    How will I learn stuff after May 4?



    That's my Yahoo ID from the late 90's. It's tacky but accurate as I continue to be a total rock man.
