For what stuffs do you
use Google? You might say for searching the internet, or using its email
services. But what I say? I say that I use Google for showing me a full
fledged barrel roll, or to flip me a coin. Really.. If you don’t believe me
then Google for “do a barrel
roll”. See? It works like charm.
If you want to know some more funny tricks then continue reading.
1.Do A Barrel Roll
Okay, so this one’s a
common one. But I’m still sure that many people don’t know that your Google
homepage can do a barrel roll. To watch this in action, simply go to Google
homepage and type in “Do a Barrel
Roll” and hell yeah! The
search result page will do a barrel roll for you. You can even ask Google to
repeat this action an n number of times. Simply specify the ‘number of times’
you want Google to do the Barrel Roll and it’ll repeat it for you.
Askew means "not in a straight position" or "tilted". So
when you search for "[Askew](http://google.com/search?q=askew)" in Google,
it'll provide you the search results page in an Askew form. Cool! Right? The
search results page would be tilted some degrees to the right. And this thing
gives a darn good effect to your results page. You can also see this effect
whenever you search for the keyword "tilt".
If you are a programmer, you
probably know what "recursion" means. Recursion simply means recalling the
same function within itself. In programming, a function would call itself
every time it's invoked until and unless an exit condition is justified. The
similar effect/approach can be seen when ever you search for
"[recursion](http://google.com/search?q=recursion)" in Google. As a part of
next logical step, Google will ask : "Did you mean: recursion?" every time you
search for recursion.
What happens if you type "[Zerg
Rush](http://google.com/search?q=zerg%20rush)" in the Google search bar and
hit Enter? the answer's simple, your search result page is attacked by 'o'
shaped zergs, trying to eat up your results page. Zerg Rush was actually
originated as a tactics in strategic video game Starcraft, which meant to
clean sweep a whole lot of low level group using surrounded attacks from the
attacker. So "Zerg Rush" is actually a mini game within the result page, in
which your goal is to survive the attack by destroying the incoming "o" shaped
zergs. You can do that by clicking the "O'' three times.
Remember Physics classes?
Everything that goes up comes down. Looks like that's the case with Google
too. Type "[Google
hit "I'm feeling lucky". This will take you to a page looking similar to
Google homepage. But wait! Looks like everything is falling down. See Gravity
is everwhere, even on Google's homepage.
And A lot more..
