Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

When one types in "miserable failure" on the google.com search engine, and hits 'i feel lucky', it brings up the biography of George W. Bush, throught the White House web site. What's the deal with this? Is it a cute prank by the utopians at google.com or something else? ...and by the way I love and respect our 43rd President. God bless W.

A: Dear Tony,

Fortunately for the folks at Google, they have nothing to do with it. It's just that some people have found out how their search engine ranks pages, and have made it so their page ranks the highest for whatever phrase, so if you hit the I'm Feeling Lucky button, it goes to their page. But thanks for letting everyone know how to make fun of George W. Another fun one is "French Military Victories". Check it out.
