    As a native Scot I feel I must stand up for my country by correcting your literary reference - you seem to imply it was Steinbeck who wrote "The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry", when in fact the proverb is derived from Robert Burns' To a Mouse (1785), a line in the second last stanza of which reads "The best laid schemes o' mice an' men / gang aft agley". Steinbeck merely borrowed from Burns for the title of his 1937 novel Of Mice and Men.

    On-topic: naughty Google.

    It was an accident, accidents happen. They fixed it straight away, so I have no problem with them.

    I never imagined this would happen, but I certainly imagined something would.
    While it seemed a good idea in principle, the skeptic in me knew better than to enable that particular feature in my firefox google toolbar.
