I wonder what would happen if the filters looked at the text portion of the resultant HTML instead of what they do now. I'm actually disappointed that Lolsaur's username didn't get changed to the cheese thing.

Would it be possible to have some kind of group event whereby we engineer the search numbers for a given subject on google to make the graph look like genetailia or something?

Yes. We must do this.

Figure out how many searches you want on each day. We'll need a number of forumites willing to do this equal to the number of searches we need for the highest day. Make a list of assignments for each forumite as to which days they are to perform the search.

Use two different trend lines to create a sideways penis? You just need them to slightly go up and down at opposite points, and meet abruptly at the end.

On a side note, are there google trends for usage of google trends? I want to see the trend of people looking up the trend of things.

I was trying to find a "parent" thread. One where parents can go to discuss things like potty training and other issues associated with raising youngins... I did a search for it.. brought back 52 pages. I gave up after getting to the 5th page. Is there an easier way to search topics?

I spend less money on unneeded stuff online, normally -- there's less of things catching your eye and you suddenly deciding you need them. Also I don't forget as many things. (There's no easily accessible supermarket anyway, so online shopping makes sense for more than one reason...)

Yeah, although I like the reduced stuff I can pick up in actual shops...but I can see why food shopping's done online, just never done it :)

I'm quite good with things like that. It has to be reeeaally good, or reeaaally cheap. Preferably both. Like 20p chocolate muffins. Or 30p wholegrain baguettes. Yum :)

Depends on how a)self disciplined you are, b)how important the lectures are, c)how boring they are. Generally after a couple of weeks you should be able to multitask note taking and forum surfing.
