Tech Tip Tuesday: Google Fun

GoogleI’ve been somewhat of a Google Geek since about 1998, when I read a paper by Brin and Page while I in still working on my M.I.S.  I knew they were going make something big, only I didn’t have a good business mind back then.  If I did, I might be much better off financially today!  Even though I didn’t get rich off Google, I do make sure I stay up on what they are doing and admittedly I really like a lot of what they do.  One thing I find very cool about Google is that they like to have some fun and have a pretty cool sense of humor.

Here are some fun things you can do with Google (you may want to select ‘Do Not Use Google Instant’ under your search settings)  Things that you should type are put in single quotes and you do not need to include the quotes in your search.  Most of these searches will also work best if used from the main Google search page rather than from the results pages from your first search.

Some ‘I’m Feeling Lucky’ searches:

  • type ‘search‘ and click on the I’m feeling lucky Google search option
  • type ‘google gravity‘ and click on the I’m feeling lucky Google search option
  • type ‘google gravity‘ and click on the I’m feeling lucky Google search option
  • type ‘google hacker‘ and click on the I’m feeling lucky Google search option
  • type ‘epic google‘ and click on the I’m feeling lucky Google search option
  • type ‘google goth‘ and click on the I’m feeling lucky Google search option
  • type ‘search‘ and click on the I’m feeling lucky Google search option

Calculator Fun:

  • type ‘the answer to life the universe and everything
  • type ‘loneliest number
  • type ‘once in a blue moon’
  • type ‘baker’s dozen

Fun Search Results:

  • type ‘tilt‘ or ‘askew
  • type ‘do a barrel roll‘ or ‘Z or R twice
  • type ‘recursion
  • type ‘ascii art
  • type ‘anagram
