An odd set of search results in Google. Prompted by a blog comment, I ran a
search on {Freud barbarian-horde}. The results were a subject for a bit of
head-scratching. Casting aside the "Freud"-"Freudian" distinction (although
past incarnations of Google would have distinguished between the two), a
full third of the results does not have the word "Freud" in them at all.
Instead, the highlighted term is "Darwin". I only scrolled through the first
few pages--perhaps looking further down will reveal some other surprises.
