Ugh. I had this idea but just couldn't find a technical co-founder willing to work for equity.

Sometimes maybe it's a good idea to wait for that "Thank you."

It's a nice try, though.

My first 3 searches, free association style:

1) Naked
2) Squirrel
3) Boobs

Not sure what that was all about.

I think this is actually a seizure search engine. Yow!

Looks pretty crap as designed, but without it I never would have heard of Kate Upton, so... thanks.

> The First GIF Search Engine Is Hilariously Bad

Looks like they're scraping tumblr blogs, taking all animated gifs of a post and using the tags of the post as tags for all gifs found in that post. Which is the reason you get totally unrelated tags on the gifs.

For instance. This gif is of Michael Cera as George Michael in Arrested Development, but that gif comes from this post which is tagged #once upon a time #ouat #gif #sad gif #frustrated gif #dead gif #big bang theory #big bang theory gif #sheldon gif #original #self #thoughs. So now that one gif gets all the tags of the post, even though all but "sad" have nothing to do with that gif.

So it's a very crude tagging system. I guess it's a start, but they'd need to improve on the tagging/searching somehow to make the site more useful.

THE FOLLOWING PEOPLE ARE NOT IMPRESSED: Annie Walker, Barack Obama, Ben Wyatt, Bilbo, Britta, CM Punk, Jed Bartlet, Liz Lemon, Peggy, Roy, Scully and Tim Gunn. These people's lack of impression were discovered through an innovative GIF search engine called "using fucking Google for fuck's sake."

Let me save y'all some time. You were looking for this.

So this is what it feels like to move from "boringly normal" to "cripplingly addictive paraphilia" in three seconds.

This is actually kind of useful.

Until it provides search results for "MetaFilter", I am not interested.

Only two results for "popcorn"? Pathetic.
