Binary One, Degree Zero

Haiku follows certain rules, and Iambic Pentameter others, but in general, the machinery is relatively transparent, and the poetry sort of sits at the center.

Unlike Googlism, which obeys no clear rules I can determine. Like anything that mirrors the complexity of a human brain, I could spend all day in there, but here are a few I found that make the web itself seem fallible, human. More human than it's component users. Maybe.

Bedroom, 1984, 1976, Paris 1968, Kio Stark, The 100 Years War, and of course, the number one search term (always) produces results similar to real life: contradictory, lengthy, so full with meaning as to eliminate it.
