Google/Who Wants to be a Millionaire?

I reckon at least 90% of the questions asked on Who Wants to be a Millionaire? can be found within 20 seconds and within 2 mouse clicks via Google (or maybe the Encyclopedia Britannica DVD?). They never said sitting in front of a computer is illegal, so why not arrange with a friend on the “phone-a-friend” lifeline to sit on a computer with a really fast net connection awaiting the phonecall? Instead of telling him the question, give him the search query, and while the page loads, tell him the question :).
