    I think it`s all set up. If you type in a search in google, and then retype the first few letters, your search will appear in a box just like those did.

    "If you type in a search in google, and then retype the first few letters, your search will appear in a box just like those did. "
    It doesn`t do that for me on the main page, only on the other pages. I tested to make sure by typing "is my computer ovulating" but that doesn`t appear on the front page when I type "is my computer ov" :P

    Thats not that stupid a question. Replace "chicken" with "birds" and (depending on your point of view) its not a dumb thing to ask...if your into paleontology!

    Kaoreil: "Are chickens dinosaurs?" isn`t as dumb a question as it might seem. There`s good evidence that birds are quite closely related to small flightless dinosaurs. Chickens are the best known small flightless bird in many parts of the world, so the "chicken - dinosaur" connection isn`t so dumb.

    They`re apparently only black on top, and get lighter farther down:

    "I`ve always wondered why blacks have lighter shaded hands... no one`s been able to explain it to me."

    The palm side of your hands are far less exposed to sunlight than elsewhere. That`s assuming you wear hardly any clothes, of course, but our far ancestors almost certainly didn`t and this stuff goes back a long time. The skin on the "inside" of your hands is tougher, which might reduce the penetration of UV and thus melanocyte activity. I`m guessing about that, but it`s a reasonable for a species strongly adapted to tool use. Maybe there are just fewer melanocytes there and melanin is prodiced in situ...that`s just a thought.

    It`s true of everyone, by the way. It just gets more noticeable as skin colour gets darker, because the contrast is greater.

    The same things apply to the soles of your feet, another area which is lighter.

    This is a gold-mine... If you click on "Older Posts", you get some genuine classics which people have asked google (try it yourself!) such as:

    - Do girls get boners?
    - Can I eat my own poop?
    - Do pirates take baths?
    - Can I get AIDS from swimming in a pool with black people?
    - Is it a sin to vote for Obama?
    - Are midgets people?
    - Are all babies WTF?
    - (my personal favourite) Is it going to be OK?

    +++++++++++++++++

    Time to wheel out the Davymid "Thought of the Week", which I just made up there now.

    We all know and agree how stupid the average person is, right? Well, just remember, half of the population of the planet are more stupid than that.

    2 things to think about

    1. Children have heavy access to the internet, that alone could mean much

    2. some of the searches (like the one in "google is Deep") are just quotes, or just google doing what its supposed to do and find any search with those words in it.

    i think id stick with the to many people using the internet thing.
