Yahoo Answers, one of the longest-running and most storied web Q&A platforms on the Internet, is shutting down forever on May 4th. So we at Bored Panda decided to pay our respects to this iconic online project and take a look at some of the funniest and weirdest posts people made there.

To do so, we turned to Yahoo Answers Now, a subreddit where people share all the interesting stuff they find on the platform. And there have been plenty of them. The best part of scrolling through these ridiculous questions and answers is that you never really know if the person is kidding or they're actually a prime example of humanity's biggest flaws.

Continue scrolling and check out the screenshots for yourself.

Yahoo, which is now part of Verizon Media Group following the company’s sale to the telecom for nearly $5 billion in 2017, announced the change at the top of the Yahoo Answers homepage. The message links to a FAQ page, which details the timeline of the shutdown—starting April 20th, the platform will no longer accept new submissions.

Users will also have until June 30th to request their data. After that, it will be inaccessible. That includes "all user-generated content including your Questions list, Questions, Answers list, Answers, and any images," Yahoo said, but "you won't be able to download other users' content, questions, or answers."

Given the circumstances, you could say Yahoo Answers Now is about to become a precious time capsule.

A note sent to active Yahoo Answers members provided them with a little more detail as to why Yahoo is shutting down the platform, saying that "it has become less popular over the years" and that the company "decided to shift our resources away" from the product to "focus on products that better serve our members."

"We launched Yahoo Answers sixteen years ago to help people around the world connect and share information," the message said. "With you and millions of other users, we built the best place on the web to ask and answer questions on a variety of topics, creating a community of global knowledge sharing. While we could not have been prouder of what we accomplished together, we are reaching out today to let you know that we have decided to shut down Yahoo Answers on May 4th, 2021."

As The Verge pointed out, the fact that Yahoo Answers has become a meeting place for far-right individuals may have also contributed to its demise.

Whatever the true reasons are, it's hard to argue with Justin McElroy, a co-host of the comedy podcast 'My Brother, My Brother and Me,' who said that Yahoo Answers was a place for people to put questions they were too embarrassed to ask the people they knew in real life. "The weird, the dumb, the truly, truly demented: it all found a place on Yahoo Answers."

Vicky Zar

Well.... if you think about it... a long long time ago there was no proper education about anything. Especially not sex. But that did not mean that people could not take care of themselves or their offspring. Just because he does not know stuff about menstruation doesn't mean he will be a bad Dad. Sometimes I think simple people are even better parents, then hyper educated ones. And the children are happier because they don't have to be over achievers for their parents sakes.

Just to play devil's advocate, I'm curious if all of the people calling this guy stupid actually know off the top of their heads where menstrual blood goes when women are pregnant. Because I know a lot of people who know the extreme basics of pregnancy--like, for example, the fact that periods temporarily stop--but most of them have no clue what actually happens during it.
