Can't Find On Google . Com

Can't Find On Google . Com While many people seem to think that Google can find anything (and knows everything), experienced web surfers know the results are often a bit lacking. So this site allows you to post what you are really looking for and what you punched in to the "Big G" to try to find it. The owner claims to know someone who works at Google that is "always interested in what people can't find on Google" - doubtful IMHO if they will really change anything based on this site. But semi-interesting stuff that highlights the inadaquacy of search engine technology.

This is too good to keep to myself.

This is too good to keep to myself. It's MetaFilter, after you've gone through the portal into Malkovich's mind, as Malkovich. (thanks Lake Effect)
