I know what he's talking about.  On initial page load, you'll get 10 
pages or so with the arrows over the "ooooooogle" part of the links. 
But, by the time you get to page 3, you're out of results and all the 
other pages of links aren't there any more.

And it's not even because of the "similar" filter either.    I've seen 
this countless times, but I can't think of a certain phrase off the top 
of my head.
