Google gone wrong

Anyone got any amusing Googling stories?

Just now I put 'flow work' into google. Flow work is also known as moving boundary work, it's basically PV, pressure times volume (Pv for specific flow work), and it's what differentiates enthalpy from internal energy. All Google gives me, however, is stuff to do with 'workflow' and making people, I kid you not, 'flow in their work'. After three pages of management-nonsense I just gave up and am now delving through the divine being that is Perry's.

If you believe everything you read, better not read.

Google has helped me immensely though sometimes it throws some random results at me but when it does I switch to another search engine.

I am sure you would know what gets Google going? don't you

Well, not google, but when I search for tunfiskurinn (the tunafish) on Youtube I get; Did you mean Tunfisk urine?

Why, oh why, would I want to find that?

About a year ago I was surfing for my daughters to play games with one of their favorite cartoon characters, and I googled 'winx club'. Ya better make sure you go with the 'kids club' one, the other sites were very naughty.....

Looking for disney characters in google to draw randomly, and some names I typed in, came up with some rude images of those disney characters

Also known as NiNo on other forums.

I haven't done any hilarious mistakes with Google but the history teacher of my upper secondary school made once a funny one. I would want to tell it but I'm afraid that there are a language barrier preventing me (how do you call an antique Roman party in which partier tend to overindulce with food and almost anything? A Roman orgy? A Roman debauch? If I'll learn the word I can try to explain).

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

I got more education than I bargained for when I was searching for information on pregnant mares and what to do when a mare is foaling. I learned all about how premarin is made
