Aimless Google searches

In which I look for random images.

Steve Jobs presenting

I have a little game I like to play, it is called Image Roulette. The rules to this game are very simple, but it is an endless source of enjoyment (and as you will see potential IT policy breaches). The basic premise is to see what a simple image search on Google can produce.

I’m pretty good at Google, I even have a certificate in Power Searching from them, and I consider it a matter of pride that I can answer most things within a few different queries. I even use the advanced tools like colour and time. This is why I find it fun to play Image Roulette, because I know the odds be ever in my favour.

To play this game you simply need:

  • A device that connects to Google Image Search
  • A gullible fool to toy with

The first step is to make sure that SafeSearch is off. For the purposes of this game filtering out explicit results is not going to keep anyone from being fired. The aim is to find an innocuous or honest sounding query and find a result that will be a little shocking. You play the game by:

Start talking about some random thing you found on the internet to the target, you can spin out the story a little but the aim is to make them curious and really want to see what it was you found. You then direct them to search for it using Google Image Search because “I’ll know it when I see it”, you then get them to search for your pre-screened term and watch their reaction as some slightly iffy pictures appear on their screen (if this is done at work all the better for their ensuing panic).

As an example (WARNING NSFW and Caveat Emptor)

“Sam, did you see that clip of the little girl crying because a cat broke their pen?” (Note how I am using two internet staples here…crying children and cats, this is a great hook)

“No, where was it?”

“It was on some random site, what was it called, I think you can search for it”

“Okay let me Google it”

“Search for the picture, I found the video from a meme, trying searching for PEN IS BROKEN“.

PHOTO-Pen is broke

“Okay, let’s have a…oh god…ahhh…close…close”

That is how you play Image Roulette.

Some other queries include:

“Sabrina, you love cute animals…did you see the pictures of the two polar bears at Sn Diego Zoo who turned bright red from the heat, no…okay search HOT BEAR

PHOTO-Hot bears

“Frank did you watch the soccer at the weekend? That German player Mario Gotze got kicked up the butt while going for a header. Yeah look for the picture, I think you spell it G.O.A.T.S.E BUTT

If you can find someone who is immune to innuendo or entendres then feel free to try the Sticky Pussy (cat covered in jam) or Christina Piercing (Christina Aguillera’s crazy nose piercing).

Ah, so you worked out the riddle. You just needed to use dwarfish and the doors to Geek Ergo Sum opened. Or perhaps you just used Google. Either way you are here, on my little corner of the Internet.

    1. If there are people who don’t know how scary the internet can be then they shouldn’t be allowed the internet. I had to ban my wife from thinking about using Twitter or Reddit as she gets angry at Facebook comments from people she knows.


      1. Yes, Reddit is not for her… I keep having to remind myself sometimes when reading articles or even looking at pictures on tumblr, “don’t read the comments… don’t read the comments… dammit! I told you not to read the comments!” >_<
