The objective of this game is to type a word into "google images" and see how few hits you get. The "grand prize" is to find a word with only one image hit.



http://images.google.com/images?gbv=...=Search+Images



For example I typed in "dog" and got 42.4Million images. I then typed in "barrerite" (a rare mineral) and got 217 images.



The rules:



It has to be a noun (a person, place or thing)

It has to be a single word, or a group of word that commonly go together "german shepard",

It has to be in English.

Words with zero image hits do not count.



When you found the hits respond with the results in this format:

Barrerite 217 A rare mineral

Happiness is not the result of a mathematical equation comparing the good times and bad times someone has had. It is a state of mind.

Thanks SS, but the word you chose is a transitive verb, not a noun.

Isn't "Hecatostemon" a Latin word?

carnophallogocentrism 10

Quote:
"In a process that Derrida termed carnophallogocentrism, humans establish themselves retroactively, through this subjugation, as uniquely possessing “speech or reason, the logos, history, laughing, mourning, burial, the gift, and so on”"
