Google the word failure...I think you'll find the first hit quite humurous...

Google bombing's nothing new. The statistical system they use to determine results is deeply flawed because it's not excessively difficult to manipulate. Last time I checked, "jew" brought back an anti-jewish website. Being outrageous or starting an internet phenomena that jumpstarts a lot of linking makes it easy to jack up sites to unlikely places on Google.

you click "I feel lucky" if you think your search is narrow enough to take you to the site you want...

It's actually a time saver on a slow computer if you're sure your google will yield the address of choice. Or if you're at school and need to look busy.

It may be a flaw, but I think it's an interesting one... it certainly provides a way for people to get an opinion across to a lot of people. It can be used to great advantage (but like always, can be used for great harm). *shrug*

And whats the "I feel Lucky"

WTF is that for..Really Stupid
http://www.google.com/help/features.html#lucky says
" The "I'm Feeling Lucky™" button takes you directly to the first web page Google returned for your query. You will not see the other search results at all. An "I'm Feeling Lucky" search means you spend less time searching for web pages and more time looking at them.

For example, to find the homepage for Stanford University, simply enter Stanford into the search field and click on the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button. Google takes you directly to "www.stanford.edu", the official homepage of Stanford University. "

I'm confused, how is that stupid? (I don't use it myself, but some people might)
