Default Look, Before Google, Fixes This:)

Just something being sent round...

Go to google.....type the word failure in......click on "I am feeling lucky" instead of "google search", and see what what comes up.....

I wonder if the President of Google is a Democrat!

Actually, this has been around for quite a while. I remember doing the same thing about six months ago.

I saw this over a year ago. It is intentional.

I was told that Michael Moore started it, but I doubt that is true.

My favorite is typing "french military victories" and clicking "I feel lucky."

Trip,
I think you're on to something. Try typing in "moron" and hit the I feel lucky button.

Pudy, all you have to do is type in "failure" and just hit return (don't click I feel lucky). The top two are "sponsored" google links. You will find the original and the "copy."
