Making Google Behave

It's always been a big annoyance that when I go to http://www.google.com it often redirects to http://www.google.co.jp based on my IP address.

The problem with Google Japan site is that it puts priority on results that are in Japan.  I usually want US-based results.


Basically, just add an "hl" language parameter as follows:
http://www.google.com/webhp?hl=en
 
"Within Japan" looks like a great blog overall for us techie gaijin living in Japan.
