Back in the day, before Google established its reign, there were a whole bunch of different search engines to choose from: Alta Vista, Ask Jeeves,Webcrawler, Lycos, Yahoo!, and of course, Dogpile. Dogpile in particular, seems to be suffering from lack of use these days. You can tell because it’s autocomplete suggestions have gone completely off the rails.
The bizzare results are probably the result of a small and less-than-tech-savvy userbase and people who come to Dogpile to ask things they’re too embarrassed to Google. That being the case, Dogpile’s autocomplete isn’t exactly helpful, but it is hilarious.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
