Flaming Nora!

Jul. 20, 2016 4:09 am

Hacking Google Chrome with the IDD research method led to my A-Z of busted myths. And it even led to a paradigm changing discovery (Nullius in Verba 2014).

But "Flaming Nora"! Searching for the origins of that expletive just crashed Google Chrome

1 First result searching the entire 19th century draws a weird complete blank:

Searching Google on "Flaming Nora" for the entire 19th century crashed Google on 20th July 2016

2 Second try on the same search parameters returns an apology and explanation:

"We're sorry but it appears that there has been an internal server error while processing your request. Our engineers have been notified and are working to resolve the issue.

Flaming Nora! Because Google worked fine on everything else before and after. I made many repeated attempts but it just kept crashing on just this one search parameter. i.e within the whole of the 19th century. Setting the date parameters manually 1800-1901 returns 19th century literature - but none containing the phrase. Many hours later the same problem persisted. But only on the phrase "flaming Nora"

How weird. Maybe it is "The Curse of Flaming Nora"

I love it!
