    Hey, here's a funny thing to try with Google. Do a search for the word "failure", and then click "I'm Feeling Lucky". See what happens.

    It took me about two or three seconds to realize that all you have to do is hold down the button on the mouse to keep it from running away. I guess that's cheating though.

    You used to be able to do the same thing with "Weapons of Mass Destruction" on Google and it would bring up this.

    Make sure to actually read it.

    Yep, these are due to Google bombs

    Try "liar" and I'm feeling lucky.

    Aha... Something like this may have been the secondary purpose of a virus that I picked up once. The virus or spyware, I'm not exactly sure which, would make you computer automatically turn certain words you posted on forums and sent in messages into links to sites for companies that provided services in relation to those words.
