    If you want to see something really strange, Google “322 COVID”, and just scroll down and read the headlines. Something really weird going on with this.

    I think he is concerned that if you google you will see there are 322 new cases in all sorts of areas. The problem with that is I just arbitrarily picked "327 covid" and got nearly the same result. I think there are enough cities/counties/days/states worth of reporting that pick a number and it will show up a lot.

    LOL. I did the same thing with 117, and got nearly the same result. It’s as though the search engine is returning links to the parameters I entered....SPOOKY!

    Huh? Now getting parallel results with different numbers is even weirder then what I put out here.

    I am at work and trying to get something wrapped up, and my nephew sent me a thing on Messenger, and I gotta admit seeing the same number come up everywhere was weird. .

    They are not parallel - they are not saying 112 new cases in denver on 6/5 and 322 new cases in denver on 6/5. You are dealing with statistics from ~120 days from hundreds of cities and hundreds of counties.

    If you can get the same report with different numbers, then you're on to something. Otherwise, meh.

    Did not other GTers get the same reports using different numbers in the search?

    Not sure what this is, but it is weird, and not supposed to work like that.

    I kind of agree. Sounds like google is pandering to the user.

    Pandering how?

    You guys are underestimating how many Covid stats are reported. There are a thousand numbers between 1 and 1,000. There are more than 1,000 cities, if each city reports its daily covid stats for 120 days each number will come up 120 times on average.

    Get screenshots, make copies of the pages, send them on to the people that can use them, get them seen by everyone. Just talking about something like this here does no good. Send it to any of the sites that might run a story such as this.

    And good work! Now get to it!

    I will have to sit down later and try and think. I would rather drink beer, maybe more? and not think too hard.

    Spitting out whatever the user puts in IE wants to hear. Who knows everyone esp gun owners should be well aware they do some shady all the time. Never trust that search engine.
    Or what you said is probably most likely really. A conspiracy just sounds better. Honestly though it is google.

    There are not 1000 numbers between 1 and 1000.

    I bought a blue, Subaru Outback. On my way home from the dealer when I picked it up, I noticed how many people were driving blue, Subaru Outbacks.
