    Cool What the hell is a "Google Search Cloud" ?

    It's down the bottom of the front page and shows teh latest search terms/phrases that people have entered into Google which have resulted in them clicking a link which brings them to TWF - click on the phrase and you will see the page that the last person was taken to.

    The bolder/larger the phrase, the more times it has been googled (and resulted in teh searcher coming here)

    I personally find it interesting to see what people searched for and what information they actually received.

    I've seen them on some blogs.

    One explanation....
    "...Perl program parses an Apache HTTP server access_log in extended format and collects all referers [sic] which might be generated by a search action on Google. The query your visitors used are extracted and grouped per web page and status code. Then the program generates a valid HTML 4.01 strict webpage that shows those queries as a cloud as used by some Web 2.0 websites to present tags. "

    Clear as mud?

    Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
