    Search for "what defines an english person" on Google.

    It's the exact, beautiful truth. :awesome

    Hahaha -- I wonder if someone found a new way to screw with Google to make that show up or if it's 100% legit. Nice.

    That's not a barrel roll, that's an aileron roll.

    LAME.

    It does it regardless of which one you type. Methinks that the "programmers" didn't think that the average joe would know the difference between the two and probably found it easier to not include the pitch change and just kept it horizontal.

    And more to the point, no one outside of pilots and FSX nerds knows what an aileron roll even is.

    So there I was expecting a result of tea and scones when this most ghastly phrase assaulted my sensibilities.

    Poor show, old chap. Poor show.

    Cheddar: It's called googlebombing. Put simply, one of the ways google evaluates a site's relevance to a search term is how many links to that page are made with those terms from other pages. I think Randall did something similar for the text at the bottom of xkcd (we did not invent the algorithm) and got xkcd near the top of search results for fun by having readers link to xkcd from their own blogs/sites with that text. For a while when you searched idiot you'd get George Bush Jr's wiki and so on.
