I would explain, but as it turns out, wiki does it way better than I could:

I lifted the phrase from Illuminatus & Principia Discordia, with no idea that it had a history beyond those works. Learn sumthin' new every day....

Of course, the real deep philosophical question on this thread is "WTF happened to Lemonie's post that I had originally replied to?" Poof. Gone.

Argh. It's back. When I send my earlier comment, it was nowhere to be seen - my first comment was directly under (and seemingly attached to) onrust's "I don't know what i did". Sheesh.

THe owners of the site do research on who and how the site is used and made their change based on that.  They feel that the new features make for a cleaner easier to use site.

If you click on "Graphical Search" just to the right of the search button it will give you a search that is somewhat similar to the old search.
