Well, I’ve had a bit of time to put some effort into the Quackometer, and now it has a few new features and improvements.
1. First – ‘Am I a Quack or Not?’ will allow you to type in a name and see how Quacky that person is. More on this later…
2. Secondly, we have some tables ranking web sites and suspect quacks to give some highlights for the day. This should change on a day-by-day basis.
3. I have also added the first of some analysis features to let you see why the quackometer has given the rating it has. I want to make this a useful tool for quackbusting, so if you have any ideas, let me know.
So the challenge is this…
It looks fairly easy to find very quacky web sites and to score a perfect 10 in quackiness, but can we find the Perfect Quack?
The Perfect Quack will score 10 on the quackometer. This is indeed possible but we haven’t found a Perfect Quack yet. In order to score a perfect 10, the quackometer has to rate the top three sites returned by Google as 10 Canard sites. Who has this dubious distinction?
Just as Dudley Moore gave Bo Derek a perfect 10, I would like to award a perfect 10 to a suitable Quack. So far, ‘Dr’ Gillian McKeith ‘PhD’ tops the polls with a very commendable 8 Canards. Not quite good enough though. (Never did I think I would write a paragraph containing both Bo Derek and Gillian McKeith!)
If you find a Perfect Quack, let me know and I will keep an Honour Roll of Perfect Quacks. I may even think of a small prize for the first one!
Happy Quack Hunting!
