how, in the millions/billions of internet pages out there, does the phrase "they were looking at a thing" only occur once? not even as a complete sentence but even just as part of a sentence

http://www.google.co.uk/#sclient=psy-ab&hl=en&safe=off&source=hp&q=%22they+were+looking+at+a+thing%22&pbx=1&oq=%22they+were+looking+at+a+thing%22&aq=f&aqi=&aql=1&gs_sm=e&gs_upl=10358l10358l1l10760l1l1l0l0l0l0l0l0ll0l0&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&fp=dbbd39dca6fa9a9f&biw=1366&bih=616

- well technically it would appear twice, now that I've just typed it...

Must be something screwed up because your post doesn't show up on Google.  I'm starting to wonder if that thing actually searches websites any more.

That IS bizarre. Far more obscure combinations of words turn up more results. There has to be something more to this.

For example, I went to google and typed in a quick stream-of-consciousness sentence: i am of things sure not to my conclusion, in quotation marks as you have done, and got the following results:

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&source=hp&q=i+am+of+things+sure+not+to+my+conclusion&btnG=Google+Search&oq=i+am+of+things+sure+not+to+my+conclusion&aq=f&aqi=&aql=1&gs_sm=s&gs_upl=375l14343l0l17187l40l38l0l29l29l0l219l1454l0.6.3l9l0

That makes no sense.

you haven't put your sentence in quotation marks though...

here is your sentence with quotations, showing no results:

That reminds me of what happens when you type "Find Chuck Norris" into Google Search and then click on I'm Feeling Lucky. TeddyR

Try it and see what happens.  Buggedout Buggedout

ha, very funny TeddyR

btw "They were looking at a thing" search is now showing this thread in the results as well as the other one... so there probably was only one mention of it
