BROOKLYN - So many questions are answered using the Internet these days, but does "Googling" make us feel smarter? 

A new study asked two groups of people how a zipper works. Both groups were given the same information, but one had it from the Internet, while the other was "offline." 

According to the experiment, the group of Internet users believed they were the smarter ones.
