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.

Yep, these are due to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Googlebombing" [Broken]

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.
