I have this problem too. Google often thinks that I made a typo and presents me results for things I didn't searched for or care about and I have no way to force it to search for things I really want.
Maybe it just feels more successful because it lowers my expectations. But at least you get to mash the keyboard like a maniac, do no corrections, press return and watch it just work.
It's kind of like watching Google do a "customer is always right" squirm.
