Everyone knows the hilarity of the Chuck Norris meme. And for the fear of my own life, I dare not say much else about it, less Chuck Norris, (who is undoubtedly watching this post), round houses me in the face.
What people fail to realize is, in our internet community, we have a legend in our midst as well. For years, it has been a common misconception that Google controls rankings.

This realization happened shortly after I watched a recent episode of White Board Friday. Rand was in a rather jubilant and playful mood. Something seemed different, but I couldn’t put my finger on it.
