Zzyzzyryz doesn't (really) exist.

It's sort of interesting that Google seems like a validation tool for the existence (or lack thereof) of almost anything. When in doubt, google it. And when you don't get results, then it probably doesn't exist, right?

Seems that way. Those spiders scour every nook and cranny of the web so we don't have to. Could you imagine life without search engines? I can, but I don't want to.

On another note, I wanted to do invisibility for my research, but we lack the resources necessary to produce the proper formulation of metamaterials...

Update March 13, 2009:
Zzyzzyryz now shows up in a search engine, thanks entirely to me.

I'd say, 'woot,' but I don't think that term is appropriate here, or anywhere, for that matter.

Well, except the website, www.woot.com.

Oops, I should be doing work, not this.
