Scintillatingly Vapid
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

Someone will find a way to make a game out of anything. Take the internet, with its billions of pages of information and an incredibly sophisticated search engine like Google. Never mind research, let's Googlewhack! You probably know how the typical Google search returns something like 16, 324 results? Well, googlewhackers are on a quest for two word search terms for which Google returns only a single hit. I guess that means those two words -- and they have to be real, dictionary words -- show up together on only one page out of all the pages in the world. Pretty amazing. I admit I came up with a googlewhack quickly: scintillatingly vapid. Probably I was thinking about the poems written by a character in our upcoming Five For Silver. Then again, some might charaterize most Byzantine literature as scintillatingly vapid. Now I regret I didn't use the phrase in the the novel. Maybe that's my next task, to use a googlewhack in a book, or find one we've already put there.
