OT: Google Fight!

Okay, so this is really stupid, but entertaining, nonetheless.
There's a website out there called Google Fight (,
and all it does is take two words or strings and sees which
one gets more hits on Google.  So there are lots of fights you'd
expect (tastes great vs. less filling; republicans vs. democrats;
Coke vs. Pepsi, etc.) and also some odd ones (10.15 vs. 10.17).
So I decided to pit conlangs and auxlangs against each other,
for funsies.  The results:

conlang: 1,210,000 results
auxlang: 67,000

That's a huge margin.  Anyway, some others:

artlang: 122,000
engelang: 523
lostlang: 120
model language: 122,000
planned language: 16,600
artificial language: 386
created language: 18,800
constructed language: 71,700
conlanger: 11,600

Also, of my languages, apparently Kamakawi gets the most
mentions--almost twice as many as the runner up.  Epiq gets
52,300, but I think that's probably for some other reason.
Sathir gets a bunch of hits because of Everquest, apparently.

Anyway, this barely warrants a message.  I do think Google Fight
is cute, though.
