I try to avoid Google every day now but of course certain tasks, especially Google search just works too well. Since last year after Snowden I often think ‘I shouldn’t do this search on Google.’ hmm… I tried a few other search engines and some of them are quite ok and also claim to respect your privacy (duckduckgo.com/) but who knows…
For sure the very early days of being exited and maybe even fan of Google (remember how the smart boys conquered the IT world) are long time gone. Google is not cool any more. Google is not hip at all! ‘Don’t be evil.’ Ha! Ha! Ha! ..*hysterical* :/ … and btw: Hey Google! I don’t care about your happy, surprising animated logos on ‘great’ anniversaries or sports occasions. Your Doodles make me sick! Hello!!! The fun times on the Internet are over! Absolutely! Did you guys notice?!? …
Ok. So, it’s about time to get rid of you, slowly but surely. Let’s just start with the logo. This nifty little Chrome addon DOOD-remove will make the empty Google start page even more white. No more happy colored letters. (And no more dreadful Doodles!! Arrgh…)
Install *click click*. Good bye! AAaahhh… *relieved*. Just pure white! It feels so good. It’s a start!

fuckCAPTCHA, an open-source alternative to the spam prevention & evil humanization of human brain cycles for corporate pet projects. Add this to your site!>
The founder of reCAPTCHA created their tool to prevent spam and help humanize OCR scanning errors, later noting that he had “unwittingly created a system that was frittering away, in ten-second increments, millions of hours of a most precious resource: human brain cycles.”
In Sept 2009, Google bought reCAPTCHA, assumingly to help with the work of their book scanning project.
So why support them when you can reaffirm your efforts of enforcing the fuck corporate culture by typing it in for every time to need to verify yourself as a non-evil human.
Includes hearing impared audio captchas!
