Before you go any further, i would like to say that this message in no way is meant to offend anyone, i just got it from a friend in my email and thought i would share it with you, so please see the funny side side of it and do not take it personnaly.

The "I'm Feeling Lucky" button on Google is intended to take you to the most relevant website for your search term without you having to browse a lot of sites. For instance, putting in "cancer" will automatically take you to the
American Cancer Society website. Putting in "apples" will take you to the website for the Washington State Apples Commission.
Now try the word "failure." Follow the 4 steps below:

1.) Go to http://www.google.com
2.) Type in "failure" without the quotes.
3.) Press the I'm feeling lucky button (instead of the google search one)
4.) Were you expecting that?? i bet you weren't.

I said it on top of this message and i repeat, do not take it personnaly or offensively, i just am sharing an email i received with everyone on this forum.

Anyway, that is even funnier! The song is so catchy!
Well...it isn't really catchy...but the site is hilarious!

thats not a bug. Its called a google bomb, and its not actually done by google, but by other people.here is the wikipedia article on it. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Googlebomb) The way google is programmed is that it goes through pages and cites the most linked one as first....or something like that i'm not exactly sure. So anyways when a lot of people link that page, it comes up as first. There are a whole bunch more.
The ones i know of are:
"French Military Victories"
"Weapons of Mass Destruction" -- this one has been removed, here is what came up
http://z.about.com/d/politicalhumor/1/0/8/9/iraq_wmd_google.jpg
"Arabian Gulf" -- as a persian, i loved this one
try those out, and go to the wikipedia page, they have more. they are hilarious

Well that isn't exactly true. My entire family voted for Kerry. The majority of people in my state voted that way also. A lot of people from other countries don't realize that the majority of American people voted for Al Gore in the 2000 elections, Bush won because of electoral college votes and the supreme court. Also even if I had voted for Bush I don't think I would mind that google bomb at all. Most Americans whatever their politics know how to take a joke.
You certainly have the right to make fun of George Bush and the adminstration, but please, lay off Americans in general. We're not such bad guys.
