Wildly Inapropriate Google results [SFW]

Is it just me or is something wrong with Google sometimes. I found myself searching Google to see if it was possible to restart the ALG process on a Juniper SRX router. These are the results that came up. The first 2 pretty normal, expected even, but then it just starts getting weird.

Site Redesign

Hi everyone. I’ve decided to do a complete site redesign and simplify things a little bit.
