Posted:...but I can't really figure out how.

Similar to the "french military victorys" Google joke only... well... it looks real umm

Go to Google, type "failure" and hit "I Feel Lucky"


Give me a lever long enough and a place to stand and I can beat the world into submission.

Posted:I think that's something to do with how google sorts it relevance things. I think it looks at how many sites contain a word (eg, failure), and what sites they link to. so, if lots of blogs and stuff repeatedly call bush a failure, and link to his site, then that will come right at the top of the list, or something.
