Pointless search of the day

In Google: "Exile GROGGS PF101" - search the web

Did you mean: exile groggs fp101

No standard web pages containing all your search terms were found.

Okay, then. "Exile GROGGS FP101" - search the web.

Your search - exile groggs fp101 - did not match any documents.


Googlewhacking - the idea is, hit Google with an unlikely combination of two words, and try and get just one page hit across the whole of the Internet. Google currently knows about 8 billion pages. Does the size of the Internet mean that the number of googlewhacks will gradually be diminishing? Or does the increasing size mean that words that ought never (on any statistical basis) appear on a webpage together will crop up at a rate that balances the loss? Do we need a googlewhack cosmological constant? ITWSBT.
