I Googled "sample python code" and was stunned at the results.  Just to clarify, IE and Safari have nothing but, wait for it... sample Python code results.  But in FF for some reason I get the #2 result consistently when I Google the same thing.  Wow.

They didn't even have the common decency to include some sample Python code at that AppEngine link  Angry

Yeah I'll bet if I cleared my cache, cookies, etc. the results would be different.  But an eyebrow is easily raised when the search engine points back to themselves with far less relevant content.  After I posted this I tried it with Chrome and nothing but sample Python code there either.

Strange that only FF returns this  Undecided

remember back when you could type exact quotes in and get a dead reckoned
page with the quoted phrase in it search result page...

scratch that remember back when you could be at a bar and bullshitting a bunch
of people and some fag with a smartphone couldnt call your bluff immediately..


(needle scratches record.)

Remember farther back than that when you could just tell everyone your going
camping and they didnt even have beepers then so you could literally be off the
system until sunday night when you were  supposed to have checked your voice mail


now you gotta make up a story why you werent around for an sms message for five minutes.

and the nexus can stream video?  technology is [stealing] our freedoms...
