I last tried this in 2008 and it never fails to amuse me. It seems to work for almost any name. The idea is to search on Google with the words Rick needs, but substituting in your name. Then examine the first ten hits and extract the essence of the results and compile a list of what you supposedly need.
Here are the first ten Rick needs that Google listed when I searched tonight:
- What Rick needs. [This is my 2008 post.]
- Rick needs a massage.
- Rick needs a sparring pal.
- Rick needs to get his own show on Oprah.
- Rick needs numbers. [Rick went swimming with his phone and needs to rebuild his phone list.]
- Rick needs chord inversions.
- Rick needs an expert weapon smith.
- Rick needs moral support. [After rotator cuff surgery.]
- Rick needs more babies in Connecticut.
- Rick needs solid breath.
Interestingly, one of the commenters on the original 2008 post made a prediction that did indeed come about:
Over time, the browser will shift and new needs will appear…perhaps listing the rick’s needs sets about filling needs? (Galveston Wizard Comment)
Comparing the August 2008 results with today’s it looks like the only thing I still need from 2008 is a massage.
Try your name and see what you need. Then share the results.
