Treasure Hunt

Treasure Hunt

A new game of mirth and woe! It is called, rather unimaginatively “Let’s find stuff in other people’s open directories”, and the rules are incredibly simple.

* Go to google

* Search on: intitle:"index of" "Last modified" jpg *add your own keyword here*, replacing *add your own keyword here* with your own keyword, obviously. Like this.

* Explore the stuff of not-quite-net-savvy users

* Try to avoid porn. The management cannot be held responsible etc...

* Report back here with your outstanding finds - either in the comments, or better still, the discussion forum.

A fine example of an open directory run by a not-quite-net-savvy idiot can be found at http://members.lycos.co.uk/scaryduck/aaaa. Just so you know what you're looking for.

Go, my pretties! Come back with wacky stuff.


For some reason, I love the phrase “Nazi Cheerleaders”. It is often used by both press and politicians to describe people of an extreme right-wing persuasion too chicken to come out and admit the fact themselves.

However, I think this is a misnomer, and should be applied to small groups of female singers in mini-skirts:

“Adolf, Adolf he’s our man
If he can’t invade Belgium no-one can!”


“Oh Hitler you’re so fine
You’re so fine you blow my mind
Hey Hitler! Hey Hitler!”

I am not mad.

Also: A short tale on Robber Rabbit, featuring a man with Blackpool Tower up his arse. Now appearing on the Guardian Books section, because I have this: skill.
