Fun thing to do with Google

Postby St John the Blasphemist on Mon Oct 30, 2006 9:52 pm

Type the word 'failure' (without quotes) into the Google search engine & see what comes first in the list. Check the 'Why these results?' link above it to see how it happened.

pssh, everyone knows they really have an army of pidegons browsing the internet and tagging things.

although it is interesting, I don't see it as being entirely funny or unexpected, especially with the explanation.

It has nothing to do with hackers. Google indexes search terms with those links chosen, and they become more popular the next time the search term comes up.

If Bush is the number one thing associated with failure, it's because that is what most of the people think.

And for once, most of the people don't know how right they are.
True terror lies in the futility of human existence.

Malcolm Reynolds is my co-pilot.

"The only freedom deserving the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill

You'd have to be a better Haxxor than you or me, or almost anyone to pull that off, Cap's right.

Bush isn't a bad person, seems like a nice guy, but as a politician, abhorrent.

But, you know, it's a joke, strange as it may be, and it's not a bad joke, either.

And the joke flies overhead.

After a recent date, I'm positive that if you ask Joe/Jane Liberal why he/she hates Bush, more then likely it'll come back to "Cause Everyone else is doing it!"

Them's fighting words.

And if you ask the conservative about his/her views, they'll tell you "'Cause Mommy and Daddy told me to".

Don't tell me what to do, you Bible-thumping Neanderthal. :D :wink:

P.S. Why do we always get into this sort of thing? Matching souls, I guess. :mrgreen:

Yeah. No doubt you and I could be like best friends or something. It would be like a sit com, a dirty pot smoking revolutionary ultra left hippy and his Straight edge respectable moderately conservative cop friend.

...We could make MILLIONS!

You're right! You could be the skinhead high-school dropout, I could be the coffee-drinking, War & Peace reading intellectual, and they'd make me live in your trailer or you live on my estate or something. And after a few murder attempts, we'd be best friends. It'd be popular, without a doubt!


Duke

P.S. Or maybe you could drag your trailer onto my estate?

P.P.S. But then you'd have to buy a car....hmm.....
