    Various groups have done things like this in order to make a point or get some laughs. The way its done:

    Create a web site with some specific key words (such as failure)
    Get lots of people to visit it and link to it

    Eventually the google search engine will pick it up and as the site becomes more "popular" it will end up at the top of the list of web results. Since "I'm feeling lucky" merely opens the first web result, the created page will come up.

    I seriously doubt that Google was at all involved in either of these pages.

    Hmmm.. you're right.

    For some reason I always got the impression it was the people at Google trying to make a statement in a humorous manner. However, I still don't see how this can account for the "French military victories" page.

    Oh wait, now I get it. D'oh!

    There's actually an entire art to this. It's known as a Google Bomb and it's been around for a longggg time. Always fun.

    While we're at it, try "ignorant bigots", "buggy insecure browser" or "unelectable" for just a few more funny ones.

    Cool, I was spot on. For the "french military victories" one, check out the URL.

    do a regular serch for 'miserable failure'
    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=miserable+failure

    all of this is the result of a big coordinated google bomb campaign by liberal groups
    that makes no logic

    Hey, ya know what's scary? Do a Google on your name - your real name and your forum name. See how many people have access to info you thought was limited to the forum or who else shares your name.
