Skeptical Search Engine Update

So far, my new experimental Skeptical Search Engine has been used hundreds of times, and the top searchers are:

  • deepak chopra
  • homeopath
  • ghost
  • high fructose corn syrup
  • god
  • evolution
  • zecharia sitchin
  • creationism
  • ghosts
  • global warming
  • ancient astronauts
  • ufo
  • pyramids egypt
  • love
  • vaccines
  • methane bubble
  • climate change
  • pyramids
  • fossil sirenia
  • carbohydrates
  • easter island
  • acupuncture
  • vaccine
  • Gmos
  • bigfoot

This is excellent. One suggestion: Use GMO rather than GMOs and ghost instead of ghosts in order to avoid limiting the search.

    the “ghosts, global warming, ancient astronauts, ufo, pyramids egypt, love” sequence was surprisingly hilarious to me for reasons I that may lie beyond understanding or explanation… it strikes me there’s one other thing society might unexpectedly believe in or doubt the existence of (or at the drop of a hat postulate a cosmic conspiracy to explain): my sense of humor.

    That’s obviously a faked result – who would believe that ‘sex’ isn’t the #1 search item? :P~

    There’s no accommodation for the special search styles of Crystal and Indigo children!

    Your search – “big fucking tits” – did not match any documents.

    Crushed I am.

    But keep up the good work anyway.

    My search of “Watts Up With That” turned up mostly negative comments about said blog, no positive posts, and one neutral post (some blogger named Greg Laden posted, without comment, Wikio’s rankings of top science blogs).
