Launched as a knowledge-sharing platform on June 28, 2005 and quickly populated entirely with Batman villains, aliens pretending to be human, and that one weird neighbor you’d rather climb down your fire escape in a blizzard than get caught in a conversation with, Yahoo Answers was a place for users to ask questions, now matter how bizarre, and provide other users with answers, no matter how out-of-left-field those answers might be.
