This made me laugh

    This is probably common knowledge and I'm just slow on the uptake, but to demonstrate Google's efficiency, go to www.google.co.uk , type in "failure" and hit the 'I'm Feeling Lucky' button.

    That's what you want - a search engine that gets right to the point!!!

    Disclaimer - I request no-one takes this thread in any way other than intended: for laughs!

    Unfortunately, on the other side, if you put ass in google.co.uk and click I'm feeling lucky, you get something else

    Don't you suppose the nerds who programmed the site did that on purpose?

    No, it's the result of Google's rating system. There was a campaign among webmasters and bloggers to link to that page using the words "miserable failure".
    Old BBC news story
    Searching for failure? Try George W. Bush

    The other one to try (assuming it still works) is "French Military Victories"

    Edit: It still works... read it carefully
