The 10 Commandments of Google

as found at

Commandments in bold are the changed ones obviously. I'm working on the rest... Contact me if you have any ideas.

1. Thou shalt have no other Search Engine before me, neither Yahoo nor Lycos, AltaVista nor Metacrawler. Thou shalt worship only me, and come to Google only for answers.

2. Thou shalt not build your own commercial-free search engine, for I am a jealous engine, bringing law suits and plagues against the fathers of the children unto the third and fourth generations.

3. "Thou shalt not use Google as a verb.

4. "Remember [zachor] the Sabbath day and keep it holy" (the version in Deuteronomy reads shamor, "observe")

The seventh day of the week is termed Shabbat and is holy, just as God ceased creative activity during Creation. The aspect of zachor (remember) is performed by declaring the greatness of the day (kiddush), by having three festive meals and by engaging in Torah study and pleasurable activities. The aspect of shamor is performed by abstaining from productive activity (the 39 melachot, forbidden categories of work) on the Shabbat.

5. "Thou shalt honor your father and your mother..."

The obligation to honor one's parents is an obligation that one owes to God and fulfills this obligation through one's actions towards one's parents.

6. Thou shalt not misspell.

7. "Thou shalt not commit adultery."

Adultery is defined as sexual intercourse with a married woman (Rashi).

8. "Thou shalt not steal."

This is not understood as stealing in the conventional sense, since theft of property is forbidden elsewhere and is not a capital offense. In this context it is to be taken as "do not kidnap" (Rashi).

9. "Thou shalt not bear false witness against your neighbor"

One must not bear false witness in a court of law or other proceeding.

10. "Thou shalt not manipulate Search Results. Search Engine Optimization is but the work of Microsoft.

Forgive me for I have sinned

#3 and 6 fer'sure

The next time you feel like complaining.... Remember: Your garbage disposal probably eats better than 30% of people in this world.
