Re: Because everyone needs a helping hand sometimes

Your point being that me accidentally not clicking "I'm Feeling Lucky" and instead doing it the long way, proves that I'm a bit slow today and relatively easily amused?

I could have told you that. *smile*

But yes. Interesting is a choice.

Re: Because everyone needs a helping hand sometimes

no, not at all.

If I read your comment earlier correctly, you followed google's first link (which, yes, "I'm feeling lucky" would have taken you to), but then the interesting thing you found was actually under ANOTHER link that you clicked from there.

Which, if google were better, it would have found directly.

short version: It took you two clicks, not one, therefore google-search sucks (at this admittedly VERY hard problem).

Ah, ok..

Until you said "VERY HARD" I was thinking "I know someone whose mind does the kind of gymnastics that could produce a search engine that did that."

Then I started thinking about how it'd all be based around a definition of interesting that includes a bunch of variables, and you'd almost have to get people to fill out a form stating what they are interested in, which would kind of defeat the purpose.

Or, you could find out what is interesting to -most- people, and use those things with a wildcard variation mutation (GAs anyone?) thingy thrown in for the Extra Special Notabouthim Quirk Factor.

*thinks*
