A peak of some of the most circulated hoaxes on the Internet.

2000 – MentalPlex

Inducing seizure after seizure of mind-reading, search engine fun!

2002 – PigeonRank™

900 Pigeons per cluster

2004 – Google Copernicus Hosting Environment and Experiment in Search Engineering


2005 – Google Gulp

3GBs of DNA

2006 – GoogleRomanceTM and Contextual DateTM

With Google Romance, you can:

  • Upload your profile – tell the world who you are, or, more to the point, who you’d like to think you are, or, even more to the point, who you want others to think you are.
  • Search for love in all (or at least a statistically significant majority of) the right places with Soulmate Search, our eerily effective psychographic matchmaking software.
  • Endure, via our Contextual Dating option, thematically appropriate multimedia advertising throughout the entirety of your free date.

This one’s still somewhat probable…

Plumbing Hardware Dispatchers indeed

2009 – CADIE and Chrome 3D
