The somewhat enigmatic title for this post comes from a true story that amused me at the time. My father used to have an autograph book in which his friends and anyone famous could write if he so asked. It was most amusing to read through and see what people had written.
On the very last page someone had written the following:
By hook or by crook, I’ll be the last in this book.
Not to be outdone, someone else had written on the inside back cover of the book:
Did you never discover you can write on the cover?
That came to mind in reading a comment on Quora by Alan Buzdar to the topic, What Google searches only give one result (at the time of writing your answer)? He suggested that if you did a Google search for the nonsense word aaaaahhahhahahaawqqwwqwqwiqowqoiwpqipqoiwiqiwiqpwrjejrjeir
then eventually the single answer for that would be the Quora entry he had made. For my own amusement, I decided to prove him wrong. That is the Genesis for this particular post, which is being published about 6 hours later.
The race is on. Will it be the Quora answer or this post that will be the first to appear. It all depends on how fast each of them is indexed by Google. For a time Google may show one of these as a single entry but eventually will show them both. I guess it’s watch this space.
