Posted:I watched Dave Gormans Googlewhack adventure last weekend and it made me laugh lots.

So being a fan of laughing, and being a fan of random words, and having nothing at work to do today, Ive decided to get googlewhacking.

What the hell is that, I hear you cry? wink

Its when you type in two random words into google, and it returns only one result.
Such as this: here

What ones can you find?
If you happen to be bored.....

Rationalised Effluency.



Does that count? Although the result it generates is a 404...


Empty your mind. Be formless, Shapeless, like Water.
Put Water into a cup, it becomes the cup, put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, put water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot.
Water can flow, or it can Crash.

Posted:ok, I'm being really stooopid, what do you do once you've got a single result? Where is the entertainment factor? In generating a single result or in the sheer randomness? confused

The randomness is a factor, yes...

as well as seeing how random you can be.

If you type google whacking into Google, it gives you some explanations, origins, and a few examples...

There are a couple of rules for googlewhacking...

- Only 2 words. nothing else, that includes punctuation.

- Both words must be in dictionary.com. To save people looking them up, if the words are underlined in the blue bar across the top of the search results, then they're in the dictionary.

- The site found can't be a word list or dictionary page.

But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
