Introducing the Google-Image-whack (in Off-topic)

Im SO bored ;P

So I thought, why not try this?

Take two words, type them into google images, and try to get only one hit with a picture that isn't a sidebar or button or something lame.

Its quite easy really, heres my first attempt, "intravenous vodka":

Hey, I like playing Le Boules.

Godfrid and Jack like it too. (Search: Godfrid Jack).

AdminShade September 20 2005 5:59 PM EDT

Yeah! Got me one! Just try strange words and watch what Google brings you!

Can't think of a clever combination of words? I just found a Random Word Generator.

I had one result for 'mechanically sorcerous' but it was a heading banner. :\

Adjusted Glory's HUGE pic to be viewable.

Remember that really big pictures can be shrunk by using the width and hieght properties. Glory's pic is reduced to 40% of it's size. So the HTML looks something like this.

<img width="40%" hieght="40%" src="http://www.somewedbite.com/image.pic">

Maelstrom September 21 2005 12:53 AM EDT

somewedbite = somewebsite?

salt3d September 21 2005 12:59 AM EDT

And for those who spell as badly as Vestax, 'hieght' should read height. Interestingly enough, the image resizes better with only one of height and width rescaled.

Aco, that's definitely not a Google Whack, as I got "Results 1 - 20 of about 209 for alt control delete. (0.12 seconds)" when performing that search...
