Funny Foto Friday: Google Suggest

Orrr, Funny Foto Saturday.  Crap.  (Busy, blah blah, work, blah blah, training, blah excuses, excuses)

On Friday, I ran a 10K time trial.  It replaced a tempo workout of approximately the same 6 mile distance.  So, instead of running 6 miles at 6:45 tempo pace, I was to run 6.2 miles at 6:20ish 10k pace.  How did I do?  I have NO FREAKING IDEA.  When I went to turn on my Garmin watch so it could establish communication with Garmonian, the Greek god of Lactic Acid, I was greeted with this:
Battery Low
Not my picture (runwifeyrun.com)
I only wear bracelets on the OTHER hand
So, I'm not sure how I did.  I have a feeling that I was off pace by a bit and probably ran somewhere around 6:30s for a 41:00 10K (or so).  I feel like I went out a bit too fast and faded during miles 4 and 5.  Annoying.  I have another one scheduled in two weeks where I am going to make sure EVERYTHING is charged up - including my man bits. . . . in case I have to nut-up and run balls out through the last mile.  (Do ladies ever run ovaries out? Hmm)

Finally, my funny foto Friday Saturday - Google Suggest. For those of you who have been living in Siberia and haven't been to the "World Wide Web" lately, when you search on Google, it will suggest popular searches real time.  The results while usually pretty spot on, often times lead to hilarity or downright confusion. I know that I've posted at least one funny foto friday in the past with these, but I ran across a few others that were too hard to pass up. Test them out on google.com.  They all work. Happy Friday Saturday!

Left with a banana? Why is that funny?  Wait, why did I put it first?

Ok, this one really is confusing.  How does one wrestle a bear?


 What do DNA and cross-dressing dads have in common? Only Google knows

Wait, your left nipple bigger than your other....TWO?
 Just another Saturday night at the 'Boring household.....
 For Paris Hilton's sake, I certainly hope so!

These search suggestions make me worry for our society.

Isn't what shows up in your search suggestions a reflection of what sorts of things you are tending to search for? This scares me, Adam. Now I think you are scary. And now I know where all those weird search hits to my blog are coming from.

I thought that Garmin photo with the accompanying story was a pretty dang funny foto! That would kinda suck :P

Hilarious!

My advice for the people looking for
"what to do" when bored... learn grammar! "what to do when YOU'RE bored" ha!

... this is not to imply that I've never had a typo... just that it worries me that it's misspelled often enough to rank as a top suggested search!

Sometimes what comes up with google suggest isn't so work friendly...but then I wonder what it would produce

So then after five at home I am typing in what I typed at work...yeah I do that....

I love these, thanks for the laugh! I have such a fear of my Garmin running out of batteries, it borders on obsession. I charge it almost every night!

Sweet relief.

So wrong on so many levels...

So....does your virginity grow back?

Tracy said...

It took me a minute to figure out what was going on with your watch thingy as I was very distracted by all your man jewelry. It makes me wonder what the rest of your running outfit looks like. ;)

Women definitely run balls out.

A fun (and by "fun" I mean not really) game that's similar to the google game is to type a letter or two into the search bar and have all the recent searches on your computer that start with that letter come up. I'm not sure to be more depressed by the fact that my teenagers (17 and 18) are searching for naked woman pictures on the internet or that they're spelling naked wrong.

Okay, really gross that those in the Netherlands have a lot of concern over their monthlies...

I LOVE Foto Friday (or Saturday, whatever. There are no rules here). And, nicely done on the Garmin fail! I've forgotten my Garmin on race day all together, forgotten to stop it, done all kinds of crap. But that's a new one.
