How about one of these threads? Someone posts a few screenshots, and everyone else uses their internet powers to find links to each page. Every page is easily accessed from a search engine, and there are at least two clues in each screenshot.

Let's begin:








03-06-2012, 06:06 AM

1. "Internet History Sourcebooks", available at: http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/basis/abelard-histcal.asp

2. "Download: Microsoft Core XML Services (MSXML) 6.0 - Microsoft Download Center - Download Details", translated version available at: http://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?hl=en&prev=/search%3Fq%3D%2522To%2Binstall%2BMSXML%2B6.0,%2Byo u%2Bmust%2Bhave%2BMicrosoft%2BWindows%2BInstaller% 2522%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26hs%3D6qs%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26prmd%3Dimvns&rurl=translate.google.com.au&sl=zh-CN&twu=1&u=http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx%3Fdisplaylang%3Den%26id%3D3988&usg=ALkJrhhk5tOAUcCUeVojjU0XAlhZpdDCkg . Sorry about the version; hope this still counts.

3. Tineye for Terez's av - http://www.tineye.com/search/4438401cd50bbf316fe6d687e7a848995d4934ce/?pluginver=firefox-1.1

4. "Emails from an Asshole", available at http://dontevenreply.com/view.php?post=109

5. "White Kids vs. Asian Kids", available at http://tosh.comedycentral.com/blog/2012/03/05/white-kids-vs-asian-kids/

6. This was the tough one. The page it should be at logicially is http://totse2.com/totse/index.html , which redirects to a 404. You can still access the Sex article from http://totse2.com/totse/en/religion/christianity/index.html .

7. "Wagyu Beef - Dry Aged Steaks - All Natural - American Raised - Lobel's of New York", available at http://www.lobels.com/store/wagyumain.aspx

Time taken: 8mins browsing, 5mins typing (+7mins helping Mum dismantle her bed)

Wow. That was awfully fast.

You win (obviously). So now, if you so desire, it's your turn.

Two notes:

2. It's http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=3988
But what you had works too. I'm a little interested in how yours was the easier to find.

6. http://totse2.com/totse/

And a prize: Rep. (and apparently I can give a lot of it)

I'm actually moving out of this house within the hour and haven't a "to" yet (break lease; flatmate ran out of money) so I'm on very limited internet for at least 2 weeks. Can someone else pick up my baton? (Removalists due in 6 minutes)

Can't you just image search using various image search engines, thus rendering this game quite boring?

This is like the internet version of "I spy with my little eye something beginning...."
