Google couldn’t find Paris–still cant!

I couldn’t resist republishing this article

I just checked and PARIS (the paper plane) is still the top search result. Go to here to see the story told by Lester Haines on this world record attempt – PEER 1 Hosting played its part by being the sponsor for the event.

Google Can’t Find Paris

If you use Google to search for [Paris], the top search result is a Wikipedia page for PARIS (Paper Aircraft Released Into Space), “a privately-organised endeavour undertaken by various staff members of the information technology web site The Register to design, build, test, and launch a lightweight aerospace vehicle, constructed mostly of paper and similar structural materials, into the mid-stratosphere and recover it intact”.
Most likely, the top search result should have been the Wikipedia page for the capital of France, but a bug replaced it with a page about a curious project.
