Google Easter Eggs or Nerd Jokes

A new Easter Egg of Google has revealed lately. Just go to Google and type in “do a barrel roll” and search. Enjoy the spinning!

This came from a Nintendo 64 game “Star Fox”, where one of the game character Peppy asks the user to do a barrel roll. It also gives the user another option “z or r twice”, guess what? this also does the trick. Type in “z or r twice” and search.

So now you do a roll on google but that’s not all. Type in “tilt” or “askew“, see what happens!

Type “anagram” and search, google will show you “Did you mean: nag a ram”, which is a anagram of the word anagram.

Well, do you know the spelling of “recursion”, search with “recursion”, looks like you are searching recursively as you will always find “Did you mean: recursion”.

Do you know what is the loneliest number? Type in “the loneliest number”, google calculator will return 1.

Let’s find the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything. Just type in “the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything” or “the answer to life, the universe, and everything”, google calculator will return 42.

This was first found in the novel The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. The writer was asked so many times why he chose 42, and finally he replied “I sat at my desk, stared into the garden and thought ’42 will do’ I typed it out. End of story.” Anyway, it  is now a modern internet phenomena. Another funny thing happened with this number.

Searching “a bakers dozen” will result 13. It’s history of 13th century during the reign of Henry III, if a a baker was found to have shortchanged customers could be subject to loose their hand to an axe. So to avoid that bakers would give 13 for the price of 12 as an insurance to be certain of not being known as a cheat.

“once in a blue moon” returns 1.16699016 × 10-8 hertz.
