NERDFURY….Via Jim Henley, we learn that superstar chef Anthony Bourdain possesses a clear-headed and subtle grasp of how to bend the internet to your will:

The question at hand was how to find good restaurants, and his answer was to take the city you want to go to and just google up some restaurant names that serve the dish you’re after. Then go to chowhound or another foodie site, and rather than asking about restaurants, you put up an enthusiastic post talking about how you just had the best whatever you’re looking for at one of these restaurants.

At that point, what drivingblind likes to call the nerdfury will begin. Posters will show up from nowhere to shower you with disdain, tell you how that place used to be good but has now totally sold out and — most important to your quest — will tell you where you would have gone if you were not some sort of mouth breathing water buffalo.

Anybody who doesn’t immediately recognize the truth of this is obviously spending too much time in the real world and not enough time online.
