We've all heard about what happens when you type "miserable failure" into Google.

Now try typing french military victories into Google and see what you get.

I can understand the first search results <gg> but why nothing for French military victories? Bono conquered most of Europe, didn't he?

:confused: Confused of W10

Google must've changed or fixed it, whatever it was, because I just tried it and got no suggested alternatives. <shrug>
