Alright guys...here's the official Geeks To Go Google Challenge!

Premise:
Enhance your ability to use Google...and have a little fun while doing it.

Task:
Research a phrase using Google...and only Google...no other search engines can be used.
Pick a result from the corresponding list of results.
Choose a passage from that webpage and post it here. (do not post a link to the page, and do not post your original search phrase)

*Extra points will be given if you can identify the original search phrase

Objective:
See if you can find the same website that i found using google and then post a link to that site.

Rules:
Do not use people's names (you can use places or landmarks)
Do not use company names (Molson beer, IBM, Microsoft...)
Do not use any questionable content (Adult content, pirated software, etc...)
To avoid confusion, please wait for the "Challenge Initiator" (the one who posted the last active challenge) to confirm your results before posting your challenge.

GOOD LUCK
