Yeah, those are the sorts of people who don't know how to find a shop selling towels without googling, searching for a website, registering, getting a password, logging in, finding a sub-forum, and typing a stupid question.

EF needs more like those. I can imagine someone not knowing how to find towels being a great asset in all sorts of other not-needing-a-brain questions that we all need answers to.
just for kicks, I typed "where to buy a towel in Zürich" into google. not a single item on the first 3 pages of the search offered even a clue, other than a link to an EF thread and a link to Costco. of course, typing "wo gibt es badetücher in Zürich" immediately offers up Coop. so, at least according to google, asking where to find a towel in Zürich is a stupid question in German, but in English is somewhat less intuitive.
