Fun With Google


Performing a web search for symbols via Google, where nothing happens.
There are no results, not even an acknowledgment that you perfomed a search.

Symbol searches that acknowledge you searched for it, but yielded no results.

It is YOUR responsibility dear reader, to further investigate the full gamut of ASCII symbols that I am too lazy to complete.

Don't forget to retry all the symbols by searching on Google News, Google Blogs, and Chinese Google.

I want a double-spaced, heavily-footnoted report on my desk by tomorrow morning at the latest.

GO!

I'm fairly certain a good amount of ascii symbols are filtered.

Who is conspiring to censor ascii symbols?

This is disheartening. I rely on Google to order all the world. Why should symbols be left out? Why am I so lazy that I'm willing to be fired for not doing the report?

justacoolcat, by your avatar i see you are A-#1 The Duke, so I will have to take your word as gospel regarding this and any other matter.

bubs, it's obviously the cryptofascist military-industrial complex. Do no evil, my ass.

dale, you are not lazy. you are in the pocket of the Google cabal and playing cagey with me.

Say it isn't so. I can't stand to learn anything more about me.
