Google searches

Wherein I trot out a classic template for a blog post


You, maybe not you, maybe a person you know of--perhaps it's a story of a friend of a friend--someone types a couple words into Google and suggested websites are presented in a list. No, it's true. For the sake of argument, let's consider it a fact. Also for the sake of argument consider that the person running a blog can see reports of how people get there. How? Look, it's just a lot of technical mumbo-jumbo so let's call it "FM." Fucking Magic, that's what; does it matter? It happens, it just does...moving on...

To recap:
1. People
2. typing phrases
3. Into Google
4. There are results

These are some recent Google searches that have brought people to So Quoted:
  • eddie murphy and Mr. T buttcheeks homosexual - best search term ever
  • waht are the manifest and latent functions of a health club - what the hell does that mean?
  • dodge intrepid hazard lights flashing by themselves - I recommend reading Christine

What are the manifest and latent functions of a health club?

This appears to be a very common question asked of students in Introduction to Sociology. Manifest - obvious/advertised intent of the Health Club - get healthy, get fit, and Latent - covert/hidden intent of Health Club - meet new people.

Thank you! Considering all the people whom Google has directed to this page I can't believe it's taken two years to get an answer.
