Using the Google

It's good to know the ins and outs of those people who rule our world. George Bush's catastrophic - but somehow still ongoing - reign is well documented in many ways (for instance, his achievements [1] or [2]), but until now we did not know about his search engine preferences.

This being the key question of our time, you will be pleased to hear that in a recent interview Bush did indeed declare that he used "the Google".

Upon being asked whether he was into Google, el presidente responded:

Occasionally. One of the things I've used on the Google is to pull up maps. It's very interesting to see that. I forgot the name of the program, but you get the satellite and you can - like, I kind of like to look at the ranch on Google, reminds me of where I want to be sometimes.

Much as the Poorhouse supports skiving in most of its forms, it is kind of strange to imagine that the most important person in the known universe enjoys faffing around a bit looking at where he'd rather be on that program from Google that does Maps, whatever complicated title that particular package might go under. One can just imagine him zooming into the aerial view of the lake where he accomplished his proudest achievement. The Poorhouse is just rather surprised that he settles for mere Google-resolution rather than diverting some NSA satellites to pinpoint to the nearest millimetre the biggest fish in Texas.

And for those of you political wizards who have been religiously emailing (although you'd be decidedly out of date to try doing that quite so directly) with your world peace plans, not only is he clearly not interested in the matter, but he doesn't even pretend to see them. Bush, tell us about your email habits:

I tend not to email or - not only tend not to email, I don’t email, because of the different record requests that can happen to a president.

To spell it out, Bush does not use email at all, because at some point what he wrote whilst working for his population might be exposed to the world. Given he is the greatest "representative of the people" around who supposedly works solely in the interest of humanity, what's the problem? Can't he find the button for Outlook?

Well, the Poorhouse supposes if your modus operandi for exerting your power over the planet is to lie, lie and lie again you really wouldn't want to commit anything to paper, electronic or otherwise.


The Google one the Internets dot com

It's a stretch to assume I can do the math in order to comment here. Where power searches the internets. Now Americans can use the same technology spoken of by our tech savvy Googler-in-chief. Be sure click the Google's button to search for the WMDs. Video:

The Google

Thanks for the links, I much prefer your (Bush's?!) descriptions of the various Google services. Especially Google news!

Re the maths, sorry to make assumptions :-) For anyone who doesn't like doing it but intends to put a few comments on if you register as a user here then you shouldn't get asked. Otherwise there's always < ahref="">calculators to help you out.
