Grad Student Time Waster Tip #1: Google Image Labeler

Google, being the rather intelligent company that it is, has found a very efficient way to take the burden off themselves for determining individual labels for each picture in their massive image database. Have you do it! Google accomplishes this in the form of a competitive game. Called the non exciting name, Google Image Labeler: http://images.google.com/imagelabeler/

At the site, you will play a short 90 second game with someone that Google selects randomly. The point of the game is for the two of you to guess what the other one has typed in as the appropriate label for a randomly displayed image. Once you both guess the same label, a new image will be displayed. My best score is below, good luck trying to beat it.

Note 1: One of the images shown to me involved lesbian porn, so be a little weary of whose around when/where you play this game. Although, this only happened once.
Note 2: I’ll start collecting good time wasters and will put a link to a collection of them in the menu to the left titled: Grad Student Time Wasters
