Today, I couldn’t be bothered to dig into my bookmarks and find the link for the online version of the magazine of JLSS – The Journal of the Law Society of Scotland.
So I asked Google to find me it, by cunningly searching for the terms “JLSS” and “magazine”. I’d say that’s a pretty clear search: two words, both of which are correct.
But no: Google knows better.
I’m not actually wanting to look at a recent article on Agency Worker Regulations.
Actually, what Google knows I’m really looking for is sites about JLS, the boy band.
Obviously, me putting in the actual words that I want to look for just isn’t accurate enough, as after being presented with a screen of nonsense about disturbingly flexible young boys in tight t-shirts, I then have to click again to correct the search. Which actually was correct when I originally input it.
Google, I am NOT thick, and I do NOT want to have to see JLS!

Nah.. I think Google had it right.
Stop fighting it… let yourself pore over pictures of JLS… you know you want to! :p
Michael, you just made me do a little sick in my mouth.
This little script add-on for Chrome/Firefox seems to get rid of Google's latest attempt to be helpful…
