Strange Searches

Bananaslug is a serendipitous search engine. It uses the google API to mix your search term with a random seed and returns results that are probably orthogonal to what you were looking for. Minutes of fun.

Sure, but it still gives you a link to a google search using the seed word it generated for you, so you only need to put up with one extra mouse click.

Whee! I can hardly contain myself! Where has this link been all my life. I mean, not getting what I want out of Google! Who'da thunk? Extra words! Whooo!
