Comment On Hey Kids, Don't Smoke in the Rain

As a parent, I'd prefer the middle choice in this one that Kevin G. sent in. It's large enough to block the elements and sends a powerful message to the kids. [expand full text]

I don't see how the Khartoum one is a fail. It is a bit arrogant to think that "sd" would mean only South Dakota, disregarding the fact that it is also the ISO code for Sudan.

What do you expect when you want to start your vacation at The End Of The World? Of course Google assumes that you will not return.

BTW - it is funny how everyone forgot about December 21st; where is my T-shirt with "I survived yet another End of the World"?

The freecycle one is correct. The Khartoum in Sudan state is quite close to whatever godforsaken hellhole Robert inhabits. The Khartoum in Khartoum state is the one which is a little further away.

Can't blame Google for the 'Doom' one. It's just repeating a snippet of what's on the page. Obviously.

Not really, the table has an empty cell so google just moves on to the next one instead and the rest of the row is shifted over by one.

I like that the important message to kids is in the page comments, where they will be sure to see it :)

Given that "sd" is Sudan and "SD" is South Dakota, I think Khartoum should've been at the top of the list, not the bottom. To do otherwise is inexcusably parochial.

I think this is confirming the accusation of parochialness, actually.

The South Dakotan cities should be at the bottom of the list because capital letters are larger, so they are also heavier, thus they sink to the bottom, duh. (I'm willing to be entertained by arguments about density of letters...)

Spearfish is in western South Dakota. It's actually quite pretty, and is near Mt. Rushmore, the Crazy Horse memorial, and the geographic center of the US.

Hi Robert, I'm in Rapid City. :-)

"I think that Google has an interesting notion of Homepage and Filesize," wrote Mark J.
If you look at the page in question, that data's in a table with missing information in some cells.

Google search is just quoting bits from that table using some heuristic that mistakenly omits empty cells, throwing off the overall column layout.

I do wonder who this "well-known but old DOS editor" is that wrote DEU 5.21. (It's obvious he is an old one; young ones would never be able to fit it within DOS filesize.) Any guesses? 485KB.com has no hints.

Obviously a button to contact the next Borg customer service representative concerning your personal data. Only that just now no employee is free. Please wait, the next free Borg will assimi^H^H^H^H^H^H be available to you in an instant.

On a side note: I wonder if Borg ever heard of privacy laws and what would happen to their collective if they assimilated Europe.

WTF? We have a mention of an apparent female, and even a vague picture, and no one is pestering her about her hotness etc.?

I feel like I've crossed over to another reality. A kind of sad, cold, empty one.

Anthea baby, don't let this non-reaction be a blow to your self confidence. I, for one, still think you're the hottest hottie I've seen all day. Plus, you have brains enough to recognize that something is wrong with the lovely green and blue scenic view.

I'm so excited I'm considering ascending the stairs to my Mom's living room. In fact I might even go outside for a few minutes, just to calm down. Please tell me you'll still be here when I return?

I mean, I know almost nothing about you -- you could be 70 years old and 300 pounds -- but just the mere fact that you noticed me... I find that strangely compelling somehow. It is such a rare and unusual experience for me.
