Why don't you go see if it validates and then maybe you'll have some idea of what's going on.
LMAO too! Note my comments above, validation was secondary. I was referring to semantic structure which in many instances accompanies valid markup. In this case though, there may be some mixed signals being sent. I see a bunch of <p> elements and little to no semantic structure. So, Google is doing its best at guessing here and grabbing the first instance of a match. In your case, it is going to be something from within a <p> element. I see one <h> element in the document.
Am I looking at the right site? I think I am. I performed the search query in question and what would you expect? The document may not have an adequate title for one and then the rest of the page is pretty much empty. Google has done its best to assemble a title for you based on little to no content.
Since your title is a whole 8 characters long (not including ™), Google have done you a favor and optimized it for you. I'm serious, what would you expect them to do in this instance? Sure, it could leave your title alone but it does nothing for the searcher. Their algo is able to at least put together a reasonable title that is relative to the searcher's query. Maybe you could do that and not rely on Google's guessing algo to get it right?
And here I thought you were TheMadScientist! ;)
