Google reverse image searching.
Does everyone on [H] know of it's existence?

Not sure if thread worthy though I'm still surprised by the amount of people on the internet who seems to always ask "What anime is this?", "Where's your avatar from?" or "Where can I find this wallpaper at 1920x1080?"

I don't want break small talk though there is amazing technology for searching the internet people still seem to not have a grasp of.

It doesn't always work well, sometimes asking is the most efficient.

Sure, though it does work well frequently, for me at least.
Also, you have keep in mind that the Google "description" is not always the intended answer. Usually the first couple of posts are. Worst comes to worse sometimes researching a related image helps.

Still mostly quicker than requesting help.

I tend to use tineye.com first, since when it finds a match, it's usually an exact match (short of resolution).
I only use google when tineye doesn't have any results.
