I read about a guy who got convicted for murder partially based on a search of his computer, which turned up an Ask Jeeves query for "What sentence would I get if I stabbed someone in an unprovoked attack?"

ask if Jeeves is gay.
nate... Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
Alright.... Is Jeeves gay?

(waits to hear the joke)
John J. Ryan Back · 16 years, 2 months ago

How about asking Jeeves other thought-provoking questions...

Jeeves, what is the nature of the universe?

Jeeves, what is the meaning of life?

Jeeves, why DID the chicken cross the road?

Mamalissa! Back · 16 years, 2 months ago

Ask Dave's Head!

The Fruvous Playground isn't up anymore, but it had a thing where you could type in any question, and Dave's Head would answer with a Fruvous lyric.  I copied a bunch of the questions when I got the limericks and poetry off the site for Frucon.  Some are really funny.

I didn't know it wasn't up anymore. :(
Sarah Back · 16 years, 2 months ago

ask him if jeeves is gay, maggot. :P
A girl named Becca Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
Oh, sure, I've asked Jeeves lots of stuff.  Not when I actually needed to know the answer, but it's kinda fun to see what you come up with.... :)
Jan Klump Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
Yes! I used to use Jeeves all the time just because I'm a Wodehouse fan. Now I use Google mostly, but Jeeves is still my favorite. Just 'cause of the name.

Since I had it installed in my browser I hardly use anything else. I used to use Dogpile a lot. It's a metasearch engine. The problem is it gives the same hits over and over again.
Rachel Beck Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
Yeah, I still use Dogpile every once in a while, especially if I'm looking for something really obscure. But only "google" sounds convincing as a verb, and I know that's what I look for in a search engine.

There's a neat little feature you can do in Mozilla to assign a URL a keyword and pass it a strig to work with.

Make a bookmark like:

http://www.google.com/search?query=%s

Give it a short 'keyword', like "gg"

THen, to do searches, all you have to do is type into the address bar:

gg Paul Mischler

And the browser does this search

Cool thing is, most every search engine under the sun supports searches like that, so you can easily program different search engines in.

like images.google.com:

http://images.google.com/images?q=%s

dictionary.com

http://www.dictionary.com/cgi-bin/dict.pl?term=%s

Mozilla Bugzilla:

http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=

It's a pretty cool thing, and a big time saver, especially since you can hit CTRL-T (Open new tab) CTRL-L (go to address bar) then just type.

sheryls Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
amen! and the coders friend! nothing like typing in "*problem name* *language name* code example" and getting  *exactly* what you want. :D

Google gets better responces like When I was looking up something about Russell Wolff I found  "One day a social worker took John to meet an artist by the name of Russell Wolff who painted with his feet."

i hate to be disloyal to lycos, being as their logo is a dog and my dogs would be displeased if they knew...but yahoo just works so much better.
Bel kjfdxcvuyjh8 · 16 years, 2 months ago
Yahoo, although if it fails me, I go to Lycos or AltaVista. Most sites won't let you search for really common things, but once I went on Lycos and searched for "www" in the URL and got like a billion and a half results. hehe
Melinda J. Beasi · 16 years, 2 months ago
It's all about Google. I never use anything else anymore.
nate... Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
Same here... but I honestly didn't expect these results.

Wow!
Annika · 16 years, 2 months ago
I'm so boring, I use the MSN search engine. I guess I'm not as hip as I thought I was. Hee hee.
Josh Woodward Back · 16 years, 2 months ago
All the cool kids support Micro$oft. And giving your eyeballs to Billg earns tax money for your state! Do it for the children! The children!
Annika Back · 16 years, 2 months ago

Fuck the children I want something out of this. I think Mr. Bill should hand over some of this money to me directly, as I.. live in the same state as him.. and.. umm... lived *near* Redmond where the main MS building is, so.. that's a good reason!
