I was fiddling with Google’s What Do You Love(wdyl.com) the other day and discovered something that I am sure many of you’d have already discovered. I searched for ‘boob’ in Google’s WDYL.
While you expect Google to churn the interwebs and bring you the best pages on boobies, Google slyly redirects you to a results page for ‘Kittens’.
That’s right. You are looking for boobs and Google gives you kittens. On a rainbowy page.
Go ahead. Try it.
Reddit tells me that there are 437 such words that are blocked on Google. I found a slightly inaccurate version of that list – http://fffff.at/googles-official-list-of-bad-words/
Also, did you know you could ‘Search God on the move’, ‘Explore God in 3D’ and ‘Access God Stuff on the Web, faster’? I did not.
I still wonder why did Google choose ‘Kittens’ as the default search term. If it was only limited to Boobs, I can understand. I have a video here that sort of explains the connection. But for the rest, I think it is just a booby-trap.
(While you are at it, do go through this patent about Toy Kittens that has the best patent graphics ever!)
