You know that IT Crowd spoof where Jen says you can break the internet if you type "Google" into Google? Well you can't break the internet, but you can break google :P

You have to put google in as many times as you can and it breaks it. OK, its not a real error but its still funny.

Not working with google.com.br and google.com (we limit search queries for 32 words).

It says that but it still works if you put as many "google"'s into the box as will fit.

For example (displayed link shortened but real link is full length)...


http://www.google.com/search?num=100&hl=en&suggon=0&safe=off&q=google+...google+goog&btnG=Search

It's presumably some sort of overflow, as they don't include more than 32 words in queries anyway (if you put in the above queries with one less word it'll return results saying the search was limited to the first 32 words). Interestingly, Yahoo seems to be able to handle much larger queries, and Live can handle larger ones than Google but breaks if you make one about three times as long as the ones that break Google.

Actually, you don't need that many google's:

Code:
google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google google


will just break it. I believe that's 281 googles.

Or more precisely, 1965 characters will break google.

Code:
gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
oooooooooooooooooooogle


That's through the firefox search box .

Or through the website, 1950.

I'm on about breaking the way the forum looks with a word with no breaks in it, not something stupid google can't be bothered to fix in their script. ANY forum that has a string that long will break the template...

I had code once (for vgportal) that would take any text over 20 characters and insert a break. Very handy.
