Google makes labeling all the images on the internet the fun!

Have you always admired google from afar and wished there was something you could do to help them orgainize the worlds information? Well now you can with the Google Image Labeler. The site shows you random image from the internet and you type in labels you think apply to the image. To keep the results pure from the trolls of the internet Google pairs you with a label buddy for 2:00 intervals. It tells you what, if any, labels are already applied to the image form other users. Once you and your buddy (who cant see what you’ve already submitted) submit the same label it gets applied to the image and you get points! My buddy and I successfully labled this image of Ben Afflick as “gay”. Try it out, if not to help clean up this mess that is the internet then at least to get a sampling of random images on the internet.  My score’s currently 5,180.
