Want a laugh? This is worth the three seconds it takes.

1- Go to www.google.com

2- Type in "Failure", without the quotes

3- Instead of hitting "Search" hit "I'm feeling Lucky"

4- See what comes up!

5- Tell your friends before the people at Google fix it

Thaddy, I was going to say just that, but you beat me to it! No, seriously, my daughter found it on her own, and told me about it...

They have changed their formula now, so to speak, because of people abusing that system.

They've extended the formula significantly, but it's still the same idea. We studied the algorithm in one of my numerical methods classes.

"miserable failure" also gives the correct website.
