    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 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 "failure."

    1.) go to www.google.com
    2.) type in "failure" without the quotes.
    3.) Hit the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button
    4.) note the first listing

    Hurry, before the good folks at Google fix this!
  2. it's been around for like, 4 years, Google is not going to fix it!

    No need to hurry. This one is as old as my grandpa's buckskin underwear.

    Looks like someone wasn't paying attention to the last sticky in the OT list - the one stating NO political content in OT. :scowl:
