The Oracle of Google

This is quite an amusing meme making the rounds; I found it over at Petunia's and thought it would be fun. Rules are:

1. Go to
2. Type your name and the word ‘needs’ in quotes in the search engine and hit the button.

Melanie needs no introduction
One can only wish...

Melanie needs to find a happy medium

I like this idea; I hope a happy medium will be able to foresee a better fortune for me

Melanie needs to become somewhat flexible
Does this mean I have to try yoga again?

Melanie needs to eat. Like, a lot.
Always. I do love my food, and eating together with friends is one of my favourite ways to visit.

Melanie needs to start adjusting to a life behind bars
What is this about?

Melanie needs to keep those glasses on all the time
Google Oracle is spooky. How did it know that I can only see about 8 inches in front of me without my glasses?

Melanie needs a strong fanbase
Yes, please read and link to me! ;)

Melanie needs to accept that no one is self-sufficient all the time
I think I could have figured that one out for myself...

Melanie needs to stop now before she gets worse than she already is
Alright, this is a hint that this meme indulgence must end.


  1. lol Life behind bars huh? That could boost your fanbase. Or maybe not.

  2. Not so helpful for me -- the first hit is for someone actually named Richard Needs, who seems to specialize in "quantum monte carlo simulations" and "many-body perturbation theory calculations."

    Actually no, that's cool stuff. Got something to read tonight now!

  3. Petunia - yes, the oddness of results was fun!

    Richard - I never actually thought of there being someone with the name of Needs! At least it's someone who sounds frighteningly clever...


Thanks for stopping by ~ I always enjoy hearing your comments so please feel free to leave some!
