More Powerful Feelings!

The more using the more powerful feelings!
The more using the more powerful feelings!
The more using the more powerful feelings!

Say it enough, and it starts to make sense.

Also, I want to be able to say, “TouchNet Browser will give you Cool feelings while surfing the internet.”

That goes right up there with "All Your Base Are Belong To Us" in the list of the stupidest phrases I've ever heard, but can't get out of my head.

BTW, who needs to search 6 engines at the SAME time?

Actually, back in the day, searching mutiple sites at once was the best way to get decent results. I used Metacrawler.com for years, until Google came along.

I used dogpile.com for a while, as well, until I realized that I was getting better results by searching Yahoo (and now Google) all by itself.

On a lighter note, I do agree with one sentence in the pitch:

"Lots of lovely spirits can help you read web pages fluently and clearly!"

I love drinking lots of lovely spirits..helps me think better while browsing.

Google use to be good. It is not good any more. It only lists sites that are in some way paid for. If you free submit to google the lsting only last for 2 weeks. Yahoo keeps free submits for months even years.

That sir, is totally, 100% incorrect.

Google's main result set are all "free" submissions. The paid submissions are listed as such at the top and in a different color and along the sidebar. Every single site I own is a so-called free submission and is still on Google and ranking highly for quite a few search terms. Seach for "how to unclog a toilet" sometime.

You may want to remove your head from your arse before making absurd accusations like that in the future.

Yow! My suspicions of Ryan's rant cycle continues with the above gem.

Yes, Ryan, I agree; you've definitely got the A-game going here. Keep it up.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
