Search Engines come into fashion and search engines go out of fashion, but only one Search Engine will be there for you when Great Cthulhu rises slowly from the Pacific waters, his slumber of a million years finally at an end!
Ia! Ia! Cthulhu fhtagn!

Cthulhu seems to be a popular topic for ludicrous crossovers. Oy.

1)First, go insane. This can be achieved by contemplating either gibbering horror or vast cyclopean vistas interspersed with eye-popping bits of architecture that embraces unthinkable non-Euclidian geometries.
2)Next, bifurcate your tongue. Then bifurcate the bifurcations. Continue until the tongue resembles a sea anemone.
3) Say "Cthulhu". The results should surprise you, or at least fill you with eldrich throbbing.

Awww.. one of my co-workers (hi, Erin!) made the graphics for this, and I was going to be l33t and blog it before everyone else. I really do love the little eyeball relevance rating, though.

The Chess Variant Pages include a Lovecraftian variant called Nemeroth.
"On the square where chessplayers expect to see a Bishop, instead we find a pile of leaves. A commonplace sight in the autumn, when the deciduous trees have shed; a friendly sight, an inoffensive pile of leaves.

"However, this pile of leaves is animated, animated by a spirit so evil and so ancient that there are no words to describe either its malignance nor its anciency.

...

"[I]f you insist on playing, at least try to deprive your opponent of all legal moves. He who has no moves loses in all senses, while the other player at least manages to feel the taste of an evanescent and hollow victory."

There is a domain called shoggoth.net and you can find most of Lovecraft's work here. Neat!
