Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
Of course when you're sending around screen shots taken from your browser, it'll show everyone which tabs you have open, and often there'll be a recent search phrase sitting in the search box. I don't censor, because I don't have anything to hide... I don't care if people I work with see that I recently searched for "mootools tween".
Today just for my own entertainment I started putting bizarre phrases in there, to see if anyone will notice. So far only one person did.
Here are the first three I've tried:
"how to remove large bloodstains from curtains and walls"
"milk a cat without getting scratched"
"antelope mating videos"
can y'all suggest others?
please, they need to be safe for work. Suggestive is OK, explicit is not.
"How to dispose of a dead body"
"Nudism in the work place"
"The downside of cannibalism"
"Poisons that are undetectable in coffee"
"embalming pets for beginners"
"procuring anthrax spores"
"naked on the free-way forums"
"shaving small rodents for fun"
"detecting the difference between nuns"
"hypnotise your female colleagues"
"Exciting road-kill recipes for dinner parties"
Woo! Old Honky shows how it's done! Encore, encore!
Google has the gizmo of suggesting a search phrase from the ones that have been submitted to it.
I tried typing "why" and number two was
"why do men have nipples"
With "explosive" interestingly is not the TNT they want to know about but
With "kill", a popular one is
I used a few of these today. Most people don't notice... except one guy who sits near me, and every time I'd send a new screenshot to the group I'd hear him snicker trying not to laugh out loud. I keep thinking some day someone will go through the archive of our correspondence and see all the scary things I've been searching for. Ha!
Interesting reading if the cops ever need to confiscate your computer.
Welllll, <cough>, yeah. But if you're going to be weird, be really weird. Using the very fine work here, mix it up. Our staffer has an interesting life stringing Old Honky's stuff together.
Each one is funny, but coming in a stream, together, from one person...
Finding that the guy down the hall is searching for "Cooking your dead pets" gives pause, but the search here that really haunts me is Samizdata's "Google home page."
Of course, having worked as a supervisor over a bunch of wise-guys and gals like here, I can see this taken to the next step...Let's get the boss.
Staffer 1: Weeks, you got a second?
Staffer 1: I think you need to talk to Paul. See this screenshot? He searching for "google home page."
Weeks (falling for it completely): Why would someone do that?
Staffer 1: Good question.
Weeks: I guess there could be a reason.
Staffer 1: You think?
Weeks: Uh, well.
Staffer 1 is joined by staffer 2, who is coming to rescue staffer 1, who is having trouble not laughing.
2 to 1: You tell him about Paul?
Staffer 1: Yeah.
Staffer 2: Searching for google's home page...?
Weeks: What's the problem?
Staffer 2: Do you do that?
Staffer 3 comes in the office.
2 to 3: You ever do a search for Google's home page?
Staffer 3: All of the time.
Weeks: Yeah, well, hmmmm....
And so it goes....
