Friday Fun: Fact/Fiction

(Warning: This may or may not be true)

Some days, when I'm feeling malicious, I go to the Google page to search for and then click on the Yahoomail link. I then go to the Yahoo homepage and search for (and click on) the Hotmail link. And just to complete the circle, I visit the MSN page and search for (and click on) the Gmail link.

I like to think it hurts their ego a bit, for someone to come to their turf and then declare an affinity for their rival. I also keep hoping it screws up all their 'Most popular searches' lists.

If I'm feeling particularly malicious, I visit the Rediff page and search for (and click on) all the other three. Because after all, it's Rediff.

Roy:
Oh hell yes.

Blackfayth:
One can be, indeed, vicious on occasion.

Mudra/KM:
I'm wondering if it would be too nasty to put this up as a 4Chan meme.

I like. Will adopt the tactic when google/blogger/gmail throw inappropriate ads on the side. I dont understand the LOGIC behind those vague ads. Never relevant.
