Google indexes (parts of) this website everyday, so hopefully it won't take too long. If you have a Google account, you could try using their form to request removal of a cached page (it will be re-indexed using the updated data). Here's the instructions: http://www.google.co...?answer=1663691

"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told them they didn’t understand life.” - John Lennon
