A-Z with Dr. Conspiracy

Hey, anything to scroll that other article off the top.

When I start typing in the address line of my web browser, the browser automatically starts filling in a guess as to what I want. It will do that after the very first letter. So, what does it suggest for those one-letter guesses? Here are some samples, skipping some uninteresting results:

  • A – Amazon.com – where you can find birther books and discussions
  • B – Birther Report
  • D – DoNotCall.gov – I hate telemarketers
  • E – English Wikipedia
  • F – Facebook
  • I – Google Images
  • M – Google Maps
  • N – Network Solutions Whois
  • O – Orly Taitz
  • S – SpamCop – I hate spammers too
  • T- Twitter
  • U – United Nations (that one surprised me)
  • W – Wayback Machine (web.archive.org) – I use this a LOT
  • Y – YouTube
  • Z – zoltanzion.blogspot.com (you can’t really view that web site any more except on the Web Archive). It’s not that I visit that site a lot but rather that it was the only “z.”

I would have expected more iOS.
