If you haven’t heard of Google Whacking, then you’re really missing out on a great online time-waster.
The trick is to find two words that, when searched for together on Google, yield exactly one result. No fair using quotes around them.
I just found: subcutaneous octopodes
You calculate your score by multiplying the number of hits for each word by itself.
Octopodes = 769
Subcutaneous = 237,000
Total = 182,253,000
And that only took me a few minutes. Bring it.
