this is sort of meaningless and kind of drivel...at the very least it might keep you amused for a while trying to find one for me.
i have a speech monday on how to search google and find what you want. ive got several good examples but need an example that demonstrates a typical american getting lots of results in a foreign language. i know it has happened to me before, probly when searching for a filename i think. anyway, any examples of that would help. want to demonstrate how they can limit results to english.
other examples and war stories welcome too of course

Google's default is "Search for pages written in any language (Recommended)."

If you use the advanced search, you can pick the language "Search only for pages written in these language(s): (a list of languages you can choose from)".

You can also set your preferences if you always start your searches from Google's home page.
