Goodies - Googlefactor

Googlefactor Competition

This game is a competition amongst people, species and things according to their Googlefactor (GF). The Googlefactor is determined as follows: in Google, the thing followed by " is" will be entered, and the first ten result sentences listed on Google will be copied. Repetitions will be omitted. Likewise for violent or profane content. And only English sentences count. Questions will be transformed to statements. Statements can be taken out of context or refer to a different thing, which doesn't matter.

Now every statement is analyzed. If it is a clear negative statement, one point will be subtracted from the default GF of 10. If the statement is positive, irrelevant, or ambiguous, nothing happens. So if there are 3 negative, 2 neutral or irrelevant, and 5 positive statements, this would make for a GF of 7 (10 subtracted by 3). The one with the higher Googlefactor wins. This game can be played with anything, and is completely objective -- I do not express my own opinion here. However, you can feel free to let this game help you make your next decisions.
