Distraction of the Day: Someone Turned Google Autocomplete Into a Family Feud-Style Game
Say goodbye to productivity, because this game just took over your workday/life.
Whenever you start typing a search into Google, the search engine tries to predict what it thinks you are looking for based on previous searches.
The results are often absurd and can make you question your faith in humanity.
You just pick a category (Culture, People, Names, Questions), and the site chooses a question/topic. The top 10 very real results from Google’s API are posted to the board which you then have to guess.
Just like “Family Feud” you get just 3 strikes before the game ends.
“Beware, certain results may be offensive and/or incomprehensible,” Hook writes on the page.
The game’s received a lot of attention since it launched, so much so that it apparently crashed their servers.
