Loopy McSleepDeprived

Half asleep, I click on the little search window in my web browser and wait for my fingers to type something interesting.

They don't.

Instead, a voice rises in my throat.

    "Truth or dare."

It is a challenge to the universe.

    "Truth or dare, Google."

Okay... Not the universe.
It is a challenge to the search engine.

Google, for its part, ignores me. Perhaps because my computer's not equipped for speech recognition. Or perhaps because, in the grand scheme of things, they have better things to do.

Bed time.

Hmm.
Isn't that what the "I'm feeling lucky" button is for?

Nope.
That's for bypassing the search results and just taking you to the first thing that comes up. Which is, more likely than not, a paid advertisement.

If you haven't typed anything, there's no first result to send you to.

All of which serves as a reminder that we make our own luck, and that no one's going to tell us what we're looking for.

You're Just Lucky Google Ignored You
It could have responded by streaming the Madonna film with that title, and then where would you be?
