Google Search For ‘Completely Wrong’ Turn Up Mitt Romney Photos

Google Search For 'Completely Wrong' Turn Up Mitt Romney PhotosTo the amusement of Mitt Romney’s critics, a Google Image search for the phrase “completely wrong” on Wednesday returned a page nearly full of images of the Republican presidential candidate.

‘Normal Google Analytics’

A Google spokesman said the gallery of photos is the unintentional result of normal Google analytics, which produce images associated with popular phrases in news headlines and search terms, and not the result of any effort to skew the results.

In this case, Google’s algorithms picked up on news coverage of Romney saying last week he was “completely wrong” when he made controversial statements last spring that 47% of Americans were “victims” and dependent on government. Romney took some political heat for the original comments, which were captured by a hidden camera at a private fundraiser in May and made public last month.


‘Google Bombs’

The episode recalls past examples of “Google bombs,” or intentionally skewed Internet search results, for politicians’ names. In perhaps the most famous case, pranksters in the mid-2000s created large numbers of links that caused Google to reference President George W. Bush (and later President Barack Obama) in response to searches for “miserable failure.” Google later tweaked its analytics to discourage the practice.

Google says it tries not to handle strange search results on case-by-case, opting instead for making improvements to the search algorithms themselves.

Were you amused by this strange Google search results linked to Mitt Romney? Are you going to vote for him this coming election? Feel free to tell us what you think of his political platforms and this recent “Google bomb!”

Things You Should Give Up To Be Happy

Here is a list of things which, if you give up on them, will make your life a lot easier and much, much happier:

Need to always be right. There are so many of us who can’t stand the idea of being wrong – wanting to always be right – even at the risk of ending great relationships or causing a great deal of stress and pain, for us and for others. It’s just not worth it.

Blame. Give up on your need to blame others for what you have or don’t have, for what you feel or don’t feel. Stop giving your powers away and start taking responsibility for your life.

Limiting beliefs about what you can or cannot do, about what is possible or impossible. From now on, you are no longer going to allow your limiting beliefs to keep you stuck in the wrong place.

Complaining. Give up your constant need to complain about those many, many, maaany things – people, situations, events that make you unhappy, sad and depressed. It’s not the situation that triggers those feelings in you, but how you choose to look at it. Never underestimate the power of positive thinking.


Need to impress others. The moment you stop trying so hard to be something that you’re not, the moment you take of all your masks, the moment you accept and embrace the real you, you will find people will be drawn to you, effortlessly.

Resistance to change. Change is good. Change will help you move from A to B. Change will help you make improvements in your life and also the lives of those around you. 

The past. The past you are now longing for – the past that you are now dreaming about – was ignored by you when it was present. Stop deluding yourself. Be present in everything you do and enjoy life. After all life is a journey not a destination.

Attachment. The moment you detach yourself from all things, (and that doesn’t mean you give up your love for them) you become so peaceful, so tolerant, so kind, and so serene. You will get to a place where you will be able to understand all things without even trying. A state beyond words.
