[Question] Quick Google Challenge! Don't cheat!
So, I saw this question and I was thinking how many users on this forum know how to Google, so that's why I'm posting this question.

First, I should mention that the question is taken from the Google Power Searching Class. Second, this question is not graded and so I can post it here before the class ends:

Quote:Before we begin, we'd like to learn a bit about what you know about search techniques. The goal of this pre-class assessment is not to judge or grade your skill, but to get a sense of what you know coming in, so that we can better understand what you gain from the class. To that end, please do not use Google to look for the answers--simply answer each question based on what you currently know.


So don't cheat! Post the first time you se this thread, without searching! I'll be watching you! Smoker
Also, post your answer in a spoiler tag (or more) so it would be fair for the other users!

Question:

[spoiler='Don't cheat!']
What would you type in the search box to achieve the same result?



[/spoiler]

Really, don't cheat, Pred!

Thanks!

I know Google is keyword based, and so the answer is already in the picture lol. All the keywords you need are right in the image; all of the invariant words or phrases.
