    In The Light Of Google Vs. Sweden [Re: Ungoogleable]...

    I thought Edugeek might be able to come up with a term for something which cannot be found on The Internet.

    The obvious [easy] answers can be knocked out straight away:

    Bing it:



    Yahoo it, DuckDuck it, AltaVista it,...

    Something more original that might make Google execs happy?

    And so Google discover the pain of being so successful that their brand name becomes a verb. I hope they never ask their cleaners to hoover the floor or refer to any temporary structures as Portakabins.

    Or use a band-aid, a frisbee, kleenex, roller blades, post-it noes, aspirin, kerosene, a thermos or a phillips-head screwdriver.

    Wait, Kerosene is a brand-name? I honestly thought kerosene was the chemical/compound name.. Like Hydrogen etc.
    As for phillips-head screwdrivers, I just call them "posi's", so no trouble there!
